World Teachers Day

World Teachers' Day is an annual international observance held on October 5 to honor and celebrate the contributions of teachers. Instituted in 1994, it marks the endorsement of the 1966 "ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers" by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). This recommendation serves as a benchmark for addressing the global status and conditions of teachers, covering aspects such as education personnel policy, recruitment, initial training, continuous education, employment, and working conditions. The overarching goal of World Teachers' Day is to highlight the importance of "appreciating, assessing, and enhancing the role of educators worldwide" and to provide a platform for addressing pertinent issues related to teachers and teaching.
