In an unprecedented joint event, UNESCO is joining forces with the International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030 (TTF), the Varkey Foundation, and Dubai Cares to bring a spotlight on teachers.

UNESCO and TTF will launch the highlights of the first Global Report on Teachers during the award ceremony of the Global Teacher Prize which this year is held in collaboration with Dubai Cares.

The initial segment will introduce new research addressing teacher shortages, offering a preview of the full report. This comprehensive report will showcase in-depth data and perspectives on the global challenges that teachers face, alongside actionable recommendations to enhance teacher recruitment and retention. The presentation will be followed by a ministerial panel addressing some of the critical issues affecting teacher shortages and the policy solutions to address this global phenomenon.

In the second part, the Varkey Foundation will present the Global Teacher Prize 2023, honouring exceptional educators in partnership with UNESCO and Dubai Cares. Established to commend an extraordinary teacher who has significantly impacted the profession, the Prize highlights the crucial role teachers play in society. The event will showcase the prestigious USD 1 million prize winner, alongside the other nine finalists chosen from a pool of over 8,000 nominations and applications spanning 121 countries.
