CENTA Teaching Professionals’ Olympiad (TPO) is a first-of-its-kind national competition to reward, recognize and celebrate teachers and also the first step towards the CENTA s. Based on the tremendous response for the first edition, this second edition TPO 2016 is being held in 22 cities across India, with 11 subject tracks plus two Challenger tracks offered! TPO 2016 is supported by The Hindu, Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, Varkey Foundation, HT Parekh Foundation (HDFC) and Central Square Foundation.
TPO 2016 is based on the Centre for Teacher Accreditation (CENTA) Standards, a set of well-defined competencies for teachers. TPO will cover a subset of the CENTA Standards and interested candidates can go through the practical assessment post the TPO to attain the full CENTA Certificates.
Centre for Teacher Accreditation (CENTA) offers Level 1, 2 and 3 Certificates for new, experienced and senior teachers respectively, aiming to create a career path and opportunities for teachers, and serving as a pointer for schools in their recruiting and professional development efforts. TPO is common for teachers of all experience levels.
