CENTA TPO is a unique national competition to reward, recognize and celebrate teachers, and also a step towards the CENTA Certification.
TPO 2017 will be held in 28 cities across India and in Dubai.
“I am overwhelmed! This is, by far, the best thing that has happened to me in a long time. God bless all of you at CENTA. I am happy that this will enable me reach out to schools far and wide, and contribute to the country's education in many more meaningful ways.”

“The well-designed questions shot from every angle perceivable in Pedagogy and brain teasers in Math ensured me that gratification I was looking for. I must congratulate CENTA for taking up such a great initiative. The profession of school teachers has always been highly eulogized on paper but not much has been done concretely to raise the water mark. CENTA TPO is a step in the right direction. Also, for self-motivated teachers this assessment could serve as a benchmark to work towards.”
Naga Padmaja Geddam
Director, The Crossword School, Guntur and CENTA TPO 2015 National Rank 17
“Every learner must face an exam, then why not a professional one? I got a mail regarding the TPO 2015 through our Principal. I gave the test and received a rank among the first 500 teachers. I was on cloud nine. I again gave TPO 2016 to improve my rank. The preparations that went missing last time from my routine found time early morning thrice a week. The logic and ability section went the best. CENTA TPO has stepped in the picture as Messiah”
Teacher, Lodha World School, Thane
“When I was attempting the questions I felt I was learning a lot while answering them. My subject questions taught me how much more I have to learn about the subject I teach and were a bit humbling. Respect! Every single question was well-made. At the end of the test we (my wife and I) kept talking of how we just want to study about teaching because we suddenly felt like beginners in a vast and exciting field”
