The UNESCO Institute for Stats (UIS) reports that Training for All (EFA) will not be achieved till teacher recruitment is actually prioritized in policy agendas. The severe teacher gap has wide-ranging consequences that undermine efforts to obtain universal primary schooling (EFA Goal 2) and also deliver quality education for any (EFA Goal 6). Thinking about the demand for brand new teaching posts and let’s assume that the pool associated with teachers is shrinking for a price of 10%, the world will have to recruit 6. 8 million teachers between 2010 and also 2015.
Directed by the Global Marketing campaign for Training (GCE), this particular year’s Global Action Week is held globally under the concept of the “ Every Child Needs a Instructor . ” The 2013 campaign aims to raise understanding of Education for All and demand that governments act now to make sure that every child has well-trained and also well-supported teachers. The state week runs through 21-27 April 2013. GAW activities still will continue all year round.
While the teacher gap is just not as severe within Asia-Pacific in comparison to the people all over the world, the issue nonetheless, poses as a threat towards the achievement of common primary education through 2015. The Southern and West Asian countries sub-region alone will require 114, 000 new teaching postures, which makes up 7% of the global share. East Asian countries and the Pacific will have to recruit sixty two, 000 new postures and Central Asian countries, 24, 000 postures.
Worldwide Action Week is a worldwide annual marketing campaign organized by the Worldwide Campaign for Training (GCE) to raise understanding of the importance of Education for All. UNESCO actively supports the campaign through organizing activities in the Headquarters and Industry Offices, mobilizing systems and encouraging Ministers associated with Education and EFA partners in order to participate.
