Every Child Needs a Teacher: Closing the Trained Teacher Gap is a report jointly produced by the Global Campaign for Education and Education International to identify the severity of the trained teacher gap, its impact on education systems and to make recommendations for closing this gap.
The UNESCO Institute of Statistics has developed an eAtlas of Teachers which lets you visualise the gaps in the supply and demand for teachers at national and global levels. Through maps, charts and ranking tables, you can explore the data to answer questions such as: how many new teachers are needed to respond to the demand for primary education? How do working conditions for teachers compare across countries and regions? To what extent are women represented in the teaching workforce?
The UNESCO Institute of Statistics has also created this interactive infographic, which identifies the teacher gaps country by country and region by region. Click here
