Thank you all the wonderful teachers who applied, and their colleagues, families and students who nominated their great teachers. On 18th October we closed applications and nominations for the Global Teacher Prize 2016, and now it’s time to read and evaluate them!
The applications and nominations were open to the public from every country of the world. We are happy that thousands from all parts of the globe responded to our call and nominated their wonderful teachers.
During the next couple of months, the Global Teacher Prize Committee and Academy Members will read the applications. The Top 50 Finalists will be announced in December 2015, the Top 10 Finalists in February, and the Winner in March 2016 at the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai.
Again, we thank you all for helping to celebrate the stories of great teachers around the world, and raising the stature of teachers professionally. To show our appreciation, we’d like to share our Storify with highlights from the last year. It’s been an amazing journey!
