Globalisation is characterized by the increasing global mobility of professionals. Global teachers are internationally mobile professionals, part of the process of circular migration. Australia receives teachers from other countries (immigrant teachers) while Australian teachers (emigrant teachers) leave Australia on a permanent or temporary basis to teach in outer countries. The story of Australia emigrant teachers provides insights into the increasingly globally-mobile Australian professional, the worker of tomorrow, not yesterday. This article discusses their emigration experiences, their stories in getting teacher registration for and teaching in schools other countries.
