October 2022 Highlights - World Teachers' Day
2022 - 10 - 08
World Teachers’ Day is a day to celebrate how teachers are transforming education but also to reflect on the support they need to fully deploy their talent and vocation, and to rethink the way ahead for the profession globally.
“World Teachers’ Day is observed annually on 5 October to celebrate all teachers around the world. It commemorates the anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, which sets benchmarks regarding the rights and responsibilities of teachers, and standards for their initial preparation and further education, recruitment, employment, and teaching and learning conditions. It is a day to celebrate how teachers are transforming education but also to reflect on the support they need to fully deploy their talent and vocation, and to rethink the way ahead for the profession globally.” (UNESCO World Teachers’ Day webpage)
This year’s celebrations were held under the theme "The transformation of education begins with teachers" to address the commitments and calls for action made at the Transforming Education Summit (TES) in September 2022 and analyse their implications for teachers and the teaching profession.
