NEW DELHI, NOVEMBER 6: Oxford University Press (OUP) has partnered with Centre for Teacher Accreditation (CENTA) for the 4th edition of CENTA’s flagship initiative, Teaching Professionals’ Olympiad (TPO) 2018. A national competition for teachers in the format of a multiple-choice test, TPO 2018 will be held this December 8 in 46 cities in India and at CENTA’s international centres in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

OUP India will sponsor the top two winners of TPO 2018 English tracks (Middle School and Secondary/Senior Secondary) to attend the two-week Oxford English Language Teachers’ Academy Masterclass at the University of Oxford, UK. The 2nd and 3rd rank holders of the Middle School English track and 2nd rank holders of Secondary and Senior Secondary English tracks will be sponsored for the Oxford Teachers’ Academy Online training programme in partnership with the University of Oxford; and rank holders 4th to 7th of the Middle School English track and rank holders 3rd to 5th of Secondary and Senior Secondary English tracks will receive sponsorship for OUP’s Online Teacher Training programme.

Speaking about OUP’s association with CENTA, Sivaramakrishnan Venkateswaran, Managing Director, OUP 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. At OUP, we help teachers to accelerate their developmental journey by offering a wide range of online and offline teacher development programmes, including courses that are certified by the University of Oxford.”

This year, TPO is available in 21 subject tracks (up from 14 last year) across Primary, Middle, Secondary and Senior Secondary school levels.
