Happy World Teachers Day!
Today is World Teachers’ Day, an opportunity for everyone to celebrate Teachers around the globe. Teachers are transforming education, they’re the unsung heroes we depend upon to provide our children with an education but the reality is, they do so much more.
Today is not only about celebrating the enormous contribution teachers make, but also to reflect on the support they need to make the most of their talent and to explore how the role can be developed globally.
UNESCO, the International Labour Organisation, UNISON and Education International have today, released a joint statement putting teachers front and centre on the global stage:
“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.”
The theme for this year is, The transformation of education begins with teachers”. Here at Vocaleyes we have qualified teachers among our team who really understand the challenges faced by the profession and the outstanding commitment to learning demonstrated by teachers, often to the detriment of themselves or their own families. We believe we can help support teachers to drive the changes they want to see become a reality.
Our digital tool is used in schools across the UK to provide a valuable platform for learner voice, we would love to see it used to provide teachers with a real way to have their voices heard within the school and beyond. If you’re a headteacher who’d like to explore how you can engage and empower your staff to make positive change for your school and your learners, please get in touch today.
We’d also love to hear from teachers who would like to explore how we can help provide them with the tools they need to make a difference for themselves.
