International Teacher Migration and the Commonwealth Teacher Recruitment Protocol: Assessing Its Impact and the Implementation Process in the United Kingdom

European Education, v40 n3 p89-101 Fall 2008
The Commonwealth consists of fifty-three independent nations that have associated in order to facilitate better international communication and cooperation. These sovereign nations are not bound by a constitution, but do issue statements outlining Commonwealth agreements, beliefs, and recommendations. In September 2004, a Commonwealth Teacher Recruitment Protocol was endorsed by all Commonwealth member states. The Protocol calls for the rights of the source countries to be balanced against those of recruiting countries as well as the right of teachers to migrate, and the rights, freedoms, and privileges teachers should enjoy when they migrate. In attempting to establish whether the Commonwealth Teacher Recruitment Protocol (CTRP) in its present form provides answers to the teacher recruitment problems of Commonwealth nations, some key questions have arisen. The research reported in this article attempts to shed light on the way the Protocol has been received by policymakers, school principals, and OTTs themselves across the Commonwealth, but in England specifically.
