Held annually on 5 October since 1994, 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.

We’ve always been told and made to understand that education is the key to our career success. Finish school, enrol in university, earn your degree, and enter the job market ready to impart your newly learned skills and knowledge. In more recent years, the model may have slightly changed and people can take different routes to achieve career success, but the premise is still pretty much intact.
