Worldwide Education Summit meets in Edinburgh

International Summit on the Teaching Profession 30 & 31 March 2017

On the 30 March 2017 Edinburgh became the focal point for education across the world as it welcomed the 7th International Summit on the Teaching Profession (ISTP).

This  annual event, that began in New York City in 2011, has established itself as one of the most important opportunities in the world for discussions on education transformation.

This prestigious event, hosted by the OECD, Education International and the UK Government and Scottish Government welcomed official delegations of ministers of education, trade union representatives, teachers and education experts from over 20 countries.

The theme of the summit "Empowering and Enabling Teachers to Deliver Greater Equity and Improved Outcomes for All” provided an exceptional opportunity for countries to learn from each other and share both their successes and educational challenges.
