The CMTO team wishes to extend a very warm thanks to all trainers on World Teachers' Day 2017!
The CMTO has 85 dedicated trainers around the country. They do incredible work every day with around 400 students, teaching a very diverse range of media skills and training.
World Teachers' Day is celebrated on the last Friday of October in Australia and was started on the 5th of October 1994 by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) to commemorate the 1966 signing of the The ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers (1966).
It looked a little something like this...
"Responsibilities of teachers
70. Recognizing that the status of their profession depends to a considerable extent upon teachers themselves, all teachers should seek to achieve the highest possible standards in all their professional work.
71. Professional standards relating to teacher performance should be defined and maintained with the participation of the teachers’ organizations.
72. Teachers and teachers’ organizations should seek to co-operate fully with authorities in the interests of the pupils, of the education service and of society generally.
73. Codes of ethics or of conduct should be established by the teachers’ organizations, since such codes greatly contribute to ensuring the prestige of the profession and the exercise of professional duties in accordance with agreed principles.
74. Teachers should be prepared to take their part in extra-curricular activities for the benefit of pupils and adults."
