World Teachers' Day Celebration - 05 October 2013
The ELRC, in collaboration with other stakeholders in education, which includes the South African Council for Educators (SACE) is co-ordinating this year’s World Teacher Day Celebrations.
The ELRC is a bargaining council composed of the Department of Basic Education as the Employer and the admitted Teacher Unions, the South African Democratic Teachers Union (SADTU) and CTU-ATU (NAPTOSA, SAOU, NATU, PEU, PSA, and HOSPERSA).
The Council’s vision, to improve the quality of learning and teaching through labour peace, encapsulates the essence of World Teachers’ Day, which not only celebrates teachers, but also strives for improvement in the quality of teaching and learning, particularly in public education.
The theme for World Teachers’ Day 2013 is: "A Call for Teachers".
This year’s celebration will be a societal engagement, that calls on all teachers, as well as prospective teachers, to join in the celebrations in Durban.
As part of a build-up to the World Teachers’ Day celebrations, a seminar involving Experienced Speakers, Teacher Organisations and Classroom based teachers will be held on the 4th October 2013. Provinces and schools will also host events at the local level.
Prominent speakers at this year’s event include the Minister of Basic Education, Ms Angie Motshekga, leaders of teacher unions and a guest speaker, the Vice President of Education International Mrs. Irene Duncan Adanusa who has been invited to deliver the keynote address on 5th October 2013.
