World Teachers Day 5th October

World Teachers’ Day, also known as International Teachers Day, is an international days, held annually on October 5. Established in 1994, it commemorates the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILORecommendation concerning the Status of Teachers, which is a standard-setting instrument that addresses the status and situations of teachers around the world.

This is a special day for the appreciation of teachers and may include celebrations to honor them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community in general.

This recommendation outlines standards relating to education personnel policy, recruitment, and initial training as well as the continuing education of teachers, their employment, and working conditions. This day aims to focus on “appreciating, assessing and improving the educators of the world” and to provide an opportunity to consider issues related to teachers and teaching.


Nearly everyone has a most loved educator, somebody who exceeded any and all expectations to energize you since they could see your latent capacity. On October 5, set aside effort to observe World Teachers’ Day — a worldwide occasion dispatched by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1994.

Taking into account that instructors shape people in the future, taking one day consistently to state “thank you” is the least we can do. Regardless of where you are on the planet today, recall that educators matter!


World Teachers’ Day commemorates the anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers. This Recommendation sets benchmarks regarding the rights and responsibilities of teachers and standards for their initial preparation and further education, recruitment, employment, and teaching and learning conditions. The Recommendation concerning the Status of Higher-Education Teaching Personnel was adopted in 1997 to complement the 1966 Recommendation by covering teaching and research personnel in higher education.

With the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goal 4 on education, and the dedicated target (SDG 4.c) recognizing teachers as key to the achievement of the Education 2030 agenda, WTD has become the occasion to mark progress and reflect on ways to counter the remaining challenges for the promotion of the teaching profession.

World Teachers’ Day is co-convened in partnership with UNICEF, the International Labour Organization and Education International.

As the day usually falls during Australian school holidays, Australian states and territories celebrate on the last Friday of October each year instead. In 2020, it will be celebrated on Friday 30 October.
