The Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) as Tuesday, October 5, 2021, marks World Teachers’ Day has sent its best wishes message to all teachers in the country striving hard to ensure the Ghanaian child is educated.
Held yearly on October 5, World Teachers’ Day or International Teachers Day, is an international day established in 1994 to honours the signing of the 1966 UNESCO/ILO recommendation concerning the status of Teachers.
The 1966 UNESCO/ILO recommendation concerning the status of Teachers is a standard-setting instrument that addresses the status and situations of teachers around the world.
This recommendation outlines standards relating to education personnel policy, recruitment, and initial training as well as the continuing education of teachers, their employment, and working conditions.
World Teachers’ Day aims to focus on “appreciating, assessing and improving the educators of the world” and to provide an opportunity to consider issues related to teachers and teaching.
GES, National Teaching Council and Ministry of Education (MoE) today will hold this year’s Ghana Teacher Prize ceremony under the theme: “Teachers wanted: Reclaiming teaching and learning for human-centred recovery.”
GTP is a three-day event organized on October 3 to 5 each year. The first 2 days are used for the symposium and exhibition, and the last day (world teachers’ day) is the climax and Ghana’s President is always the guest of honour.
Registrar of the National Teaching Council (NTC), Dr Christian Addai Poku after a meeting with Mrs Ivy Asantewa Owusu, the Bono Regional Director of Education agreed to hold 2021 GTP in Sunyani, the Capital of Bono Region.
