World Teachers' Day 2019 - global commemoration of the day will take place on Monday, 7th October

World Teachers’ Day (WTD), held annually on 5 October, is an important event for the entire educational community. It is an opportunity to celebrate the teaching profession and to promote the ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers (1966) and the UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Higher Education Teaching Personnel (1997). These instruments define international standards for the teaching profession.   Theme The theme for this year’s World Teachers’ Day is: “Young Teachers: The Future of the Profession.”  This year’s theme gives us an opportunity to value and celebrate young and beginning teachers, and indeed all educators at all levels of education. TUI members nationally should use this event to highlight the Union’s campaign for pay equality for those who entered the profession since January 2011.    When to celebrate? Since 5th October falls on a Saturday this year, the global commemoration of the Day will take place on Monday, 7th October, 2019. How to celebrate? To celebrate the teaching profession and as an acknowledgement of its importance – and yours - in promoting and sustaining values of justice and inclusion, the members of TUI in schools, colleges, institutes and centres are encouraged to mark the day by displaying this poster prominently in the workplace. The celebration might also include the purchase of cakes/confectionery/fruit for members. The cost of purchase can be recouped from the local Branch by submitting receipts directly to the TUI Branch Treasurer. Further information Information regarding World Teachers’ Day and associated resources are available  at
