EI Executive Board to acknowledge the past while looking ahead to the future

In advance of its 25th anniversary, Education International’s 50th Executive Board Meeting convenes in Brussels where leaders are set to make key decisions as a major chapter of the organisation is celebrated.

In addition to the organisation’s business at hand, the Executive Board will welcome 24 Manos Antoninis, Director of the UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report, to discuss this year’s report and address its main concerns. His presentation, which focuses on “Accountability in education: Meeting our commitments,” will be streamed live as a webinar organised by Education International (EI) on 24 January, 14:00 CET.


As well as receiving updates from EI affiliates and regions, the Board will discuss professional teaching standards. Researcher Tom Alegounarias of Australia will kick start an exchange on a Framework of Professional Teaching Standards that is intended to support broad community expectations with a focus on the needs of students.

The aim is to reach an increased understanding and cohesiveness around the teaching profession internationally. The Framework arose out of a survey conducted among EI affiliates, which analysed unions’ and/or professional organisations’ perspectives on the continuous development and implementation of teachers’ professional standards within their respective countries.

The Executive Board Meeting runs from the 23-25 January in Brussels, Belgium.
