Education remains a fundamental pillar of both global and national endeavors aimed at achieving sustainable development, safeguarding human rights, and promoting peace. However, the world is currently grappling with a pervasive learning crisis, and education systems are struggling to effectively adapt to the evolving demands of our changing world. During the Transforming Education Summit (TES), governments from more than 130 countries pledged to take immediate action to address these pressing challenges. In this context, teachers, who represent the most influential factor in determining learning outcomes, find themselves facing significant challenges.
Education remains a fundamental pillar of both global and national endeavors aimed at achieving sustainable development, safeguarding human rights, and promoting peace. However, the world is currently grappling with a pervasive learning crisis, and education systems are struggling to effectively adapt to the evolving demands of our changing world. During the Transforming Education Summit (TES), governments from more than 130 countries pledged to take immediate action to address these pressing challenges. In this context, teachers, who represent the most influential factor in determining learning outcomes, find themselves facing significant challenges. The persistent global teacher shortage and concerns regarding the role of teachers in an increasingly digital learning environment are among the numerous factors that are making the job of teaching increasingly challenging.
The United Nations Secretary-General announced on 19 June 2023 the establishment of a High-Level Panel on the Teaching Profession supported by a joint UNESCO-ILO Secretariat. This decision recognizes UNESCO’s extensive expertise in supporting teachers. The objective of the Panel is to build upon the outcomes of the Transforming Education Summit (TES) in September 2022. Its primary focus is to ensure that every learner has access to a teacher who is professionally trained, qualified, and well-supported, operating within a reformed education system. Additionally, the Panel will draw upon the findings of the UNESCO-International Task Force on Teachers' Global Report, which will be published by the end of 2023.
According to Stefania Giannini, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Education, "From the rapid development of generative AI to the alarming climate crisis, the role of teachers has never been more crucial and central." She further emphasized, "We must improve their status and working conditions to make sure they are empowered, providing quality education and paving the way to a more equitable and sustainable future for generations to come. The establishment of this diverse High-Level Panel on the Teaching Profession is an essential step in our collective efforts towards this goal."
The High-Level Panel capitalizes on the discussions conducted during the Transforming Education Summit (TES), delving into the topic further and providing clarification on the pivotal role of teachers in the process of education transformation. The panel will offer recommendations aimed at ensuring that each and every learner has access to a teacher who possesses professional training, qualifications, and robust support, enabling them to thrive within an education system that has undergone significant changes. The Panel’s report, to be submitted by end of November 2023, will serve as a contribution to broader efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4, as an input to ongoing preparations for the 2024 Summit of the Future and help advance follow-up on the Transforming Education Summit (TES). The first meeting of the High-Level Panel will convene on 18 July 2023.
