TPO, a national competition for teachers, will be held on December 8 in 46 cities in India and at CENTA's international centres in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The top two winners of TPO 2018 English tracks (Middle School and Secondary/Senior Secondary) will be sponsored by OUP India to attend the two-week Oxford English Language Teachers' Academy Masterclass at the University of Oxford, UK.
Sivaramakrishnan Venkateswaran, Managing Director, Oxford University Press India, said, "OUP firmly believes that the teacher is the principle pivot in the teaching-learning eco-system. OUP’s continued support to the CENTA organized Teaching Professionals’ Olympiad (TPO), is testimony to its long-term commitment to the professional development of teachers. Initiatives such as the TPO help teachers to gain insights into their competencies and create a developmental path for themselves."
Ramya Venkataraman, Founder and CEO of CENTA, also stated, "We are excited to continue this partnership with OUP India this year. The core idea of CENTA TPO is to recognise and reward outstanding teachers in the country and, more importantly, motivate individual ownership of teachers’ professional. This partnership and the prizes sponsored by OUP helps TPO achieve this objective, bringing highly-relevant and sought-after training opportunities for the winning teachers."
