The work of teachers matters in many different ways. Not only do they provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in the labour market, but they also help develop the social-emotional skills that are vital for students’ personal development and for their active citizenship. But how do teachers best achieve this? Join OECD and EPI at the launch of the OECD's latest education report 'Positive, High-achieving Students? What Teachers and Schools Can Do'. By linking 2018 data from the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) with evidence from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) – known as the TALIS-PISA link – this report aims to identify the teacher and school factors that matter most for student achievement and social-emotional development. The findings of the report will be presented by the OECD's Andreas Schleicher who will be also be joined by Brett Wigdortz (Teach First, Teach for All and Tiney) and Dr Vanessa Ogden (Fair Education Alliance and Mulberry Schools Trust) to discuss the implications of the reports findings for policymakers, schools and teachers. The discussion will be chaired by Natalie Perera, CEO of EPI.
