Improving teaching standards in Regional Education
Experts from the Caribbean and Latin America met in Guyana last week to review Standards for the Teaching Profession.
The review was conducted as part of a series of consultation workshops being done in five regions internationally to acquire input from key education stakeholders including teachers, teacher organisations, education planners, teaching regulatory councils, teacher educators, and researchers.
Participants will be asked to review and comment on a guidance framework and suggest ways in which it can be refined as well as recommend approaches for local adaptations. The consultations will also facilitate social dialogue to ensure that teachers and their organisations participate in the decision-making processes in the development and implementation of instruments that affect the profession.
