The final countdown has begun. From 30,000 to 50. From 50 to a shortlist of ten. And now there are just two days to go until the world’s best teacher is announced.
The Global Teacher Prize Winner 2018 will be announced on Sunday, 18 March, at a prestigious red carpet ceremony in Dubai.
Now in its fourth year, the prize awards $1 million to an exceptional teacher who has made an outstanding contribution to their profession.
With ten finalists from Turkey, South Africa, Colombia, the Philippines, the United States, Brazil, Belgium, Australia, the United Kingdom and Norway, eyes from around the world will fall on these top educators.
These ten teachers have demonstrated a significant contribution to their students’ lives. Their passion and commitment to the profession should be recognised and celebrated.
Here are the Top 10 teachers in contention for the prize.
Invited delegates at the Global Education & Skills Forum will attend the ceremony, and if you are not in the audience, you can watch the winner announcement live here.
