Teaching olympiad

|

The Oxford University Press (OUP), India, has partnered with the Centre for Teacher Accreditation (CENTA) for the Teaching Professionals’ Olympiad (TPO), a first-of-its-kind national competition to reward, recognise and celebrate teachers. TPO 2017 will be held in 14 subject tracks and four languages (English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu), across 28 cities in India and one centre in Dubai on December 9, 2017.  Designed as a two-hour multiple-choice objective test, the TPO focuses on subject pedagogy, classroom practices, logical ability and communication skills of teachers. It also offers a unique challenger track which is an additional test for in-depth subject expertise aimed to identify teachers with a great conceptual depth of the subject.

OUP, the world’s largest university press, will sponsor the top two winners of the English Challenger track for a two-week Oxford English Language Teachers’ Academy Masterclass at the University of Oxford, UK. The third to sixth rank holders in the English Challenger track will be sponsored for the Oxford Teachers’ Academy online training programme in partnership with the University of Oxford and rank holders seventh to sixteenth will receive sponsorship for OUP’s Online Teacher Training Programme. In addition to the training opportunities sponsored by Oxford University Press, winners of TPO 2017 can look forward to a wide range of rewards from other organisations: 17 winners will attend the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai. Winners can look forward to cash awards and the opportunity to co-author a book.
