REGISTRATIONS FOR THE CENTA TEACHING PROFESSIONALS' OLYMPIAD TPO 2017 ARE NOW OPEN!

A unique competition to reward, recognize and celebrate teachers, the CENTA Teaching Professionals’ Olympiad TPO 2017 will be held on December 9, 2017, across 28 cities of India (up from 23 cities last year!) and at CENTA’s first international centre in Dubai. The Hindu remains the title sponsor of the Olympiad, with additional support from Varkey Foundation, Oxford University Press, Dell and Central Square Foundation.

TPO 2016 saw tremendous response from India’s teaching community with participants coming from 500+ cities/towns/villages and 26 States/UTs (and travelling long distances to the test centres in the 23 cities). Participants included private school teachers, government school teachers, supplemental or tuition teachers, people working in various education organizations and B.Ed. students as well as many individuals interested in teaching though not a teacher currently. They 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 2017 will experience an exciting range of rewards and recognition: 17 winners will attend the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai, while 20 winners will be profiled in The Hindu group of publications. Winners can also look forward to over 100 cash awards, including four of INR 1 lakh each and special cash prizes for B. Ed. students, and one year’s subscription of The Hindu. Winners will get a unique opportunity of co-authoring a book to be published by Central Square Foundation. Five schools and five B. Ed. colleges or other teacher education institutes with the highest number of winners will win a desktop PC each from Dell. 100 winners will receive ‘social impact awards’ from Michael & Susan Dell Foundation and 800 winners will get ‘TPO Certificates’ from CENTA. In 2016, we also saw several schools and organizations felicitating their winning teachers and we hope the same continues!

By March 2018, each and every participant will be able to download a ‘participation record cum personal confidential report’ (details will be sent on email). The report will have details and analysis of the participant’s performance and how it compares to other test takers.
