Make teaching attractive!

European Week of Teachers

2-6 October 2023

On 15 May 2023, at the launch event of the campaign to promote the attractiveness of the teaching profession, ETUCE representing more than 11 million teachers in Europe invited its member organisations, education trade unions, for a coordinated week of action during the European Week of Teachers in October 2023 to raise awareness of the value of the teaching profession.

From 2 to 6 October 2023, the European Week of Teachers will call all stakeholders at national and European level to shed light on the vital role teachers, trainers, academics and other education personnel play in equipping future generations with the competences and skills they need for their future.

The main topic is:

Value, respect and empower the teaching profession!

ETUCE member organisations are encouraged to join the European Week of Teachers by organising.

  • In-person events (photo actions in schools, flashmobs etc.)
  • Create social media images or video content
  • Promote the campaign on your website
  • or by any other means that they seem fit to promote the common cause.

All activities of member organisation visible on social media channels will be shared / retweeted by ETUCE on Facebook and/or Twitter during the week of actions. To help ETUCE share your content, please use the hashtag #MakeTeachingAttractive consistently and tag @ETUCE_CSEE (Twitter) and @EuropeanTradeUnionCommitteeForEducation (Facebook).

With the information provided ETUCE will be able to give more visibility at European level to member organisations’ initiatives in the frame of the European Week of Teachers.
