International Teachers’ Olympiad 2022 receives registration from 40,000 teachers worldwide
In line with this vision of NEP 2020, the International Teachers’ Olympiad 2022 was recently launched to give teachers the respect, recognition, and rewards they deserve.
The NEP 2020 recognizes the need to ensure that teachers are sufficiently prepared and equipped to meet the learning demands of 21st century learners and calls for much-needed reforms in teacher education. The policy has implemented institutional changes to assist ‘teaching’ emerge as a desirable career for young minds. In fact, it empowers teachers by focussing on ‘restoring the high esteem and standing’ of the profession, with the hope that it will eventually entice the brightest brains and talent to choose teaching as a career.
Sharing the numbers, Suraasa (the organiser of the olympiad) said that the Olympiad has already received registrations from over 40,000 teachers from 1800+ schools. These teachers come from both government and private schools from 30+ countries.
The registration for the olympiad is still on and the team expects registrations of over 1,00,000 teachers this year.
Rishabh Khanna, Founder & CEO, Suraasa said in a statement, “The olympiad promises a bright future for Indian teachers as it enables them to evaluate themselves against national professional standards for teachers of many countries. It embeds transformational change in teachers’ way of functioning and professional development and acts as a tool for them to develop as confident, competent, continuously learning educators as envisioned by NEP 2020.”
The Olympiad is indicative of a trajectory of transformation for a phenomenal outcome for schools as well in addition to teachers. The Olympiad assists schools with a detailed analysis of the aggregate performance of their school teachers (at the school level), which actually helps them to redefine the teaching and learning process for proper implementation of NEP 2020.

They can build the foundation of a thriving education system, emphasizing the NEP’s recommendations to help the country to utilize its 100% pedagogy potential.
