World Teachers’ Day is held annually on 5 October* since 1994 to commemorate the anniversary of the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.

It provides a special occasion to celebrate the teaching profession and presents an overview of the international situation.

This year, in addition to the official opening ceremony, the celebration of World Teachers’ Day will be marked by two panel discussions organized under the theme of “Young Teachers: The future of the Profession.”

- Panel I: How to attract young people to the teaching profession
- Panel II: How to retain young and novice teachers to the profession

* The celebration event will exceptionally be held on the 7th of October this year as the 5th of October falls over the weekend.

Simultaneous interpretation will be provided in English, French and Arabic*.

* UNESCO gratefully acknowledges the Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud Foundation, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for its generous contribution in support of the Arabic interpretation of this event.
