CENTA Teaching Professionals’ Olympiad TPO 2016 was held on December 3rd, 2016, and this time across 23 cities of India (up from 7 the previous year!), with The Hindu and Michael & Susan Dell Foundation as primary supporters, and Varkey Foundation, HT Parekh Foundation and Central Square Foundation as additional supporters. TPO 2016 saw tremendous response from India’s teaching community with participants coming from 500+ cities/towns/villages and 26 States/UTs (and travelling to one of the 23 cities where the Olympiad was held). Participants included private school teachers, government school teachers, supplemental or tuition teachers, people working in various education organizations, B.Ed. students, and also many individuals interested in teaching though not a teacher currently. Participants ranged from new to highly experienced teachers and even principals and school owners. Each of the participants is a pioneer in his or her own right!
Winners of TPO 2016 will experience an exciting range of rewards and recognition: 13 winners will attend the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai, 18 winners will be profiled in The Hindu group of publications, 50 winners will get cash awards from HT Parekh Foundation and a one-year subscription of The Hindu, 30 winners will get a unique opportunity of co-authoring a book to be published by Central Square Foundation, 100 winners will get ‘social impact awards’ from Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, and 800 winners will get ‘TPO Certificates’ from CENTA. Last year, we also saw several schools and organizations felicitating their own winning teachers and we hope the same continues! Further, by March, each and every participant will be able to download a ‘participation record cum personal confidential report’ and will also get an invitation to join a teachers’ portal with useful resources (details of both will be sent on email).
