Council on Education for Teaching

Improving educational experiences and outcomes in all parts of the world


ICET and UNESCO's Institute for Statistics 

In 2015 ICET was asked by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) to become involved with the distribution of global teacher data. Disseminating the latest UIS data on the current state of the world’s teaching force assists ICET meet its commitment to improving educational outcomes and experiences in all parts of the world. The UIS data on this page include a core set of teacher indicators such as: trends in teacher numbers; pupil-teacher ratios; and data on trained teachers. We encourage members to regularly check this page as the UIS plans to release in 2015 global data on teacher training, including a taxonomy on teacher training programmes to enhance the international comparability of indicators in this domain.
