Education International is the voice of teachers and other education employees across the globe. A federation of 396 associations and unions in 171 countries and territories, it represents some 32.5 million educators and support professionals in education institutions from early childhood to university.

This interactive conference consisting of workshops, plenaries, keynotes and discussion panels seeks to provide a platform for learning and leadership initiatives that are both underway or under development. It will afford our affiliates a unique opportunity to refine and extend current strategies across borders and deepen our collective commitment to translating global conversations into action.

One important way Education International and our affiliates are taking leadership of the profession and pushing back on test-based accountability and weakened professionalism is by establishing global guidelines for the design of professional teaching standards. Hence, a major purpose and objective of this conference is to finalise and launch the guidelines and reclaim control of our professions.

The conference takes place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands
