World Teachers’ Day 2016 being celebrated today

World Teachers’ Day is observed on October 5 in many parts of the globe by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and the theme for this year’s celebration is “Valuing Teachers, Improving their Status.”

“UNESCO with the WTD convening agencies (ILO, UNICEF, UNDP, and EI) and the International Task Force on Teachers, dedicates this day to celebrating a unique intergovernmental commitment – the only international standard-setting instrument on teachers – and reaffirms its commitment to the value of the profession,” reads the statement published on UNESCO website.

Various events are arranged in many countries around the world on October 5. These include celebrations to honour teachers in general or those who have made a special contribution to a particular community.

The day is marked by conferences emphasising the importance of teachers and learning, extra training sessions for teachers, recruitment drives for the teaching profession among university students or other suitably qualified professionals and events to increase the profile of teachers and the role they play in the media.
