Campaign launched to celebrate World Teachers’ Day

Education Secretary calls for teachers and heads to post videos with reasons they are #ProudToTeach to celebrate UNESCO World Teachers’ Day. GOV.UK reports.

World Teachers’ Day, to be held on Saturday 5 October, provides an occasion to take stock of teachers’ achievements, with this year’s theme focusing on ‘Young Teachers: The future of the Profession’.

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said: “Teachers here in England, and around the world, have a truly life-changing impact on their students, acting as inspirational educators, role-models and mentors.

“I will always have fond memories of the teachers who guided and encouraged me through my school life, and today I want to celebrate the same role that all teachers have in young people’s lives. And I want all those at the front of our classrooms, inspiring our young people, to feel valued in the profession and to use today’s celebration to mark the variety of reasons they are proud to teach.”

Teachers can get involved with the campaign by posting videos to social media with the reasons they are #ProudToTeach.
