IBE special alert on teacher education


The IBE has compiled this list of resources on teacher education to assist curriculum developers, researchers and practitioners. The first section focuses on teacher education curricula, programmes and reform. Other sections include Evaluation, ICT, Inclusive education, Policy and Quality Assurance, and Status and Working Conditions. Most of the publications and documents are freely accessible online.

Teachers, their training, recruitment, retention, status and working conditions are among UNESCO’s top priorities.

“Teachers are the single most influential and powerful force for equity, access and quality in education”
, says Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO.

The main challenge faced by the teaching profession is both one of numbers and quality. In other words, the world needs more and better teachers.The quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers.

UNESCO works to address this challenge in addition to advocating for teachers and defending their rights.
