World Teachers Day
World Teachers Day, on October 5th, is a day to celebrate the huge amount of work and effort teachers, assistants, and support staff around the globe, pour into the education of younger generations.
This Day was established in 1994 and commemorates the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, which is a standard-setting instrument that addresses the status and situations of teachers around the world. Each year the UNESCO and Educational International (EI) create a campaign to help give the world better understanding of teachers and the role they play in the development of students and society.
This year, with the current global pandemic, it was even more essential to take time to thank teachers and staff who have had to adapt and change their entire teaching system, in extremely small time frames, all while keeping a smile and consistently inspiring their students.
We, at Worldteachers, created a video using snippets from a selection of schools we follow on Instagram (some whom we have helped place teachers in the past), and created a video to celebrate special moments their teachers and staff have made a child smile or positively impacted their learning environment.

The schools loved our video and they felt proud that their footage had been chosen and used.
We posted this video on our social media platforms: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok, all @worldteachers. We also posted the video on our YouTube page ‘World Teachers Recruitment’.

How did you thank the teachers in your life this year? If you feel you didn’t give enough, then don’t just use the 5th of October to say thanks. Even though it is important to have a set day for a global celebration, you can say thank you in your own way at any time.
As always, here’s to you teachers!
