Happy International Teachers' Day!

This competition is now closed and the winners have been contacted on email.

Career Lounge

We all remember the teachers who made a lasting impact on us as young people: they inspired us, motivated us, showed possibilities we didn’t know existed, and really believed in us. Suddenly maths wasn’t dull anymore or you couldn’t get enough of science experiments. Passionate about education, inspirational, supportive and fair.

Celebrated on the 5th October, The World Teachers’ Day commemorates the signing of the 1966 “Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers”, which sets out an international standard for the teaching  profession across primary and secondary education.

Research shows that effective teaching is the single most influential contributor to student success at school. And good teachers never stop learning themselves, always striving to be the best for their students. This year UNESCO’s theme for their annual conference is: “The right to education means the right to a qualified teacher”, putting the focus firmly on supporting the teachers in their development at all stages of their career.  

We are celebrating all of you amazing teachers on this community with a prize draw, and you can win one of five Amazon vouchers worth £50.

Share a comment about a person, book, trainer, student, workshop or a YouTube video that hugely influenced your development as a teacher. Why was it important and how has it impacted your practice?

Here are some ideas to get you thinking:

  • An engaging Personal Development session
  • Seeing a student progress
  • An appraisal with the head teacher in your school
  • A TED talk you watched in a break at school

How to enter the prize draw:

  2. Sum up your experience in the comment section below and share with the community.
