Education Minister Mikheil Batiashvili congratulated the teachers with their professional day and promised to take more care of them. 

The National Teacher Prize is part of the global campaign aimed at revealing successful teachers and promotion of their profession.

President of the United Nations General Assembly Tijjani Muhammad-Bande released a video address on the occasion of World Teachers’ Day:

The World Teachers’ Day, which is held annually on October 5 since 1994, commemorates the anniversary of the adoption of the 1966 ILO/UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.

Georgia established its National Teacher Prize in 2017. Georgian civil education teacher Vladimer (Lado) Apkhazava was the first to receive the prize that year.
