As part of the global preparation for the 2022 Transforming Education Summit, the third thematic Action Track will be focusing on “Teachers, teaching and the teaching profession”.
It will examine responses to issues to transform education, including: i) teacher shortages; ii) teaching personnel qualifications and emerging professional development needs, iii) status and working conditions and; iv) Teacher leadership and innovation.

This discussion paper aims to inform and inspire reflections and discussions, including in the National Consultations to be organized as part of the Summit preparation processes. It aims to include four key recommendations to inform the Summit and national voluntary commitments.
