Happy World Teacher's Day to all our Britannica staff! Thank you for all of your continued hard work, dedication and care throughout the year.
World Teacher's Day has been celebrated since 1994. It is a day to celebrate how teachers are transforming education but also to reflect on the support they need to fully deploy their talent and vocation, and to rethink the way ahead for the profession globally.
Joint message fromMs Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO, Mr Gilbert F. Houngbo, Director-General, International Labour Organization, Ms Catherine Russell, Executive Director, UNICEF, Mr David Edwards, General Secretary, Education International
Today, on World Teachers’ Day, we celebrate the critical role of teachers in transforming learners’ potential by ensuring they have the tools they need to take responsibility for themselves, for others and for the planet. We call on countries to ensure that teachers are trusted and recognized as knowledge producers, reflective practitioners, and policy partners."
Here at Britannica, we are incredibly proud of our amazing teachers, who support our students in their education, from academic to pastoral, ensuring that their experiences foster a love of learning while developing their confidence.
