The Held annually on 5 October since 1994, World Teachers' Day commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, which celebrated its 50th anniversary during last year's edition. The 1966 Recommendation constitutes the main reference framework for addressing teachers' rights and responsibilities on a global scale.
This year, World
Teachers' Day commemorates the 20th anniversary of the 1997 UNESCO
Recommendation concerning the Status of Higher-Education Teaching
Personnel. Teaching personnel at institutions of higher education are
often overlooked in discussions concerning the status of teachers. Like
teachers at pre-primary, primary, and secondary levels, teaching in
higher education is a profession requiring expert knowledge, specialized
skills, and pedagogical competence.
World Teachers' Day 2018 will be celebrated under the theme "Role of Teachers and Educators in Cleaning Up the World".
World Teachers' Day is celebrated annually worldwide and brings together governments, multi- and bilateral organizations, NGOs, private sectors, teachers and experts in the field of teaching. With the adoption of SDG 4 on education, and the dedicated target 4.c recognizing teachers as key to the achievement of the 2030 Education Agenda, it has become the occasion to mark achievements and reflect on ways to counter the remaining challenges for the promotion of the teaching profession, like the acute shortage of teachers. Indeed, according to the UNESCO Institute of Statistics, the world needs 69 Million teachers if we are to achieve universal primary and secondary education by 2030.
