WORKING AWAY: AN EXPATRIATE CASE STUDY FROM A SOUTH ATLANTIC ISLAND

University of Bolton (UNITED KINGDOM)
The UK has several overseas territories around the world. As part of this commitment, the NHS has key responsibility for the education of the local population regarding key issues associated with mental health. This commitment has seen a rise in the number of UK educators who have settled in a variety of overseas locations. This can present several challenges for these expatriates in adapting to the new living and working cultures they are faced with. This paper will seek to examine the experiences of an expatriate educator over the course of two years. Information was gathered through the use of several semi-structured interviews during 2015-2017. The primary focus of the study was to identify and examine the key motivators and challenges with a view to identifying key traits, needed in the adjustment to new working and living contexts.
