In 2004, the Commonwealth Teacher Recruitment Protocol (CTRP) was adopted by Commonwealth Member States, which aims to balance the rights of Commonwealth teachers to migrate internationally against the need to protect the integrity of national education systems, and to prevent the exploitation of scarce human resources in developing or low-income countries. After introducing key issues and drivers of teacher migration in Africa, this article examines issues affecting the implementation of the Protocol. Key successes are discussed, in addition to challenges, and lessons to be learned that are informing new education policy initiatives, such as the development of a recruitment protocol for Africa by the African Union. It concludes with recommendations for policy and practice.
