On World Teachers’ Day, 5th October 2020, we celebrate our educators – particularly in what has been a very trying year. The theme for this year’s World Day is appropriately, “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”.

The day provides us with an occasion to celebrate the teaching profession worldwide, take stock of achievements, and draw attention to the voices of teachers, who are at the heart of efforts to attain the global education target of leaving no one behind.

Over the past year, UKFIET has published several blogs relating to the challenges teachers face on a daily basis and the strength and innovation they have applied to overcome these, in order to provide a rich learning experience for their students. Here is a collection of just a few blogs we recently published. There is of course much more relevant content on our website and we encourage you to take a few moments to browse every now and then as new content is added frequently.
