An alliance between the United States’ Visiting International Faculty Program and ACER will give Australian teachers a new opportunity to develop careers abroad. The Visiting International Faculty (VIF) Program, the United States’ largest cultural exchange program for teachers, has been placing Australian teachers in American schools for nearly 20 years, but the recent alliance with ACER aims to expand recognition for the skills and experience teachers gain abroad. These teachers contribute to the brain gain for our education system, according to Jennie Hayes, the VIF Program Manager at ACER.
