We are incredibly proud to be hosting the Global Teachers Institute Graduation Ceremony, which takes place online via Zoom on Wednesday, 05 October 2022, 15:00 – 16:30, to honour our class of 2021.
Global Teachers Institute’s (GTI) 2022 Graduation Ceremony has been deliberately scheduled to coincide with World Teachers Day on 05 October. World Teachers Day represents a significant effort to raise awareness, understanding and appreciation for teachers’ vital contribution to education and development across the globe. The theme for this year’s teachers’ day is “the transformation of education begins with teachers”. Thus, the 2022 graduation ceremony will celebrate the deep support and training this graduating class received and will take to the world.
At GTI, we believe that these graduates are prepared to lead and transform the classroom and the wider school environment in the communities that they will be deployed into. They can create the future they want rather than being passive recipients of external cultures. They can unlock and activate the generative potential in their learners, fellow teachers, parents, and other actors in the education ecosystem. They are empathetic, reflective, and ethical teachers. They are unapologetic about their role as agents of transformative change.
Finally, this graduation is special because it takes place when GTI is celebrating its 5th anniversary. Therefore, this celebration will also be a time to reflect on the journey that we have travelled over the past five years as a not-for-profit initial teacher education (ITE) organisation. It is also an invitation to journey with us into the future. Hence, we will also create an opportunity for stakeholders to support this journey into the future through our Fund the Future Campaign. Together, we can continue to produce quality teachers who can solve complex world problems in an ever-changing and uncertain future – a future with increasing threats and positive solutions to come with educated minds.
