“CENTA® Standards is a well-defined and comprehensive framework of teaching competencies and CENTA’s assessments measure the competencies of a teacher very well. I am glad to see a reputed university like Manipal now partnering with CENTA® to create high quality Post Graduate Certificate Programmes in teaching as well as school leadership – these are much needed for our education system.”

Naga Padmaja Geddam, Director, Crossword School, Guntur

“Many of the current teacher preparation programmes tend to be more theoretical in nature and also not up to date. I am very excited to note that Manipal and CENTA® are collaborating to bring out a Post Graduate Certificate Programmes in teaching that will cover pedagogical methods in the context of the subject, student assessment, classroom communication and other practically needed competencies for a teacher. Further, dedicated programmes for school leadership hardly exist. I hope the programme in school leadership will cover instructional leadership as well as other roles of a principal such as managing stakeholders, leading the team, etc.”
