Reliance Foundation Teacher Awards to be given to 1000 winners of CENTA Teaching Professionals' Olympiad 2018 (TPO) 2018, including five of Rs 1 lakh each!

Each award to include a cash prize, a Jio phone and a citation. Registration for the 4th edition of the national competition for teachers is open on www.centa.org

India’s biggest competition for teachers just got bigger! Reliance Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), has partnered with CENTA Teaching Professionals’ Olympiad (TPO) 2018 as Principal Sponsor. As part of the collaboration, 1000 winners of the national competition will receive the Reliance Foundation Teacher Awards, each of which includes a cash prize, a Jio phone and a citation.

Presented by The Hindu once again, CENTA TPO 2018 is a national competition for teachers in the format of a multiple-choice objective test (no negative marking), that is still highly practice-oriented. The competition will be held on December 8th Saturday in 46 cities across India and at CENTA’s international centres in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

CENTA TPO’s partnership with Reliance Foundation underscores a natural synergy of the larger objectives driving the two entities. CENTA TPO aims to create tangible motivation for teaching as an aspirational career and for teachers to improve their skills, thereby improving the overall quality of education in classrooms across the country. This finds strong resonance with the Reliance Foundation’s prime objective to create and support innovative and sustainable solutions to address India’s most pressing developmental challenges, education being one.

Over the last three years, TPO has already captured the attention of more than 35,000 teaching professionals from 33 States and UTs in India as well as in UAE. They range from new to experienced school teachers, principals, tuition teachers, B.Ed. students, fellows and volunteers in education, and others simply interested in teaching. Participants come from both private and government schools, from all boards (CBSE, ICSE, State Board, Matriculation, IB, IGCSE, etc.), and from the biggest cities to very remote towns and villages.

The 1000 Reliance Foundation Teacher Awards will be awarded to National Top 5 (Rs 1 lakh each), National Ranks 6 to 10 and 21 Subject Toppers (Rs 25,000 each), Regional Toppers (Rs 10,000 for the Topper of every State or Union Territory) and Test City Toppers (Rs 5000 for the Topper from each of 48 Test Cities). Another 900 rank-holders will get Rs 2000 each.

B.Ed. students can also look forward to a special category of prizes! Winners among B.Ed. students will be awarded Rs 1 lakh for the highest national rank-holder, Rs 25,000 each for the next two and Rs 10,000 each for the 4th to 30th highest rank.

30 winners will be part of a television show along with an eminent National Panel, to celebrate the pride of the teaching profession. Several winners will also be profiled by The Hindu group of publications.

Other coveted prizes for various categories of winners continue from previous editions! Some of these are sponsorship to attend the world's biggest education conference, Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai by Varkey Foundation; sponsorship to a two-week Masterclass at Oxford University in UK; opportunity to co-author a book on teaching practices.

Centre for Teacher Accreditation (CENTA) works to create exciting career opportunities for teachers, through its market-driven certification of competencies.
