The top 10 finalists have been announced and are coming to Dubai in March, but for the other 40 the adventure isn’t over. All 50 finalists will be members of the Varkey Teacher Ambassadors Program. This program is a passionate community of teachers who support and promote the goals of the Varkey Foundation.
The Varkey Foundation believes every child deserves a supportive and encouraging learning environment in order to flourish, regardless of its background or culture.
Varkey Teacher Ambassadors are the role models who promote best practices in education and lead the way in developing future learning techniques.
This elite group go above and beyond to ensure the brightest possible future for the next generation.
We look at the members as a community of “super-teachers” who drive positive activity around –
- Founding best practices.
- Establishing new ways to learn.
- Being a role model for the next generation.
- Sharing information about the wider education community.
They’re given the unique opportunity to share and promote their projects to a wider audience. This might involve sharing the ideas online or being invited to speak at the Global Education and Skills Forum.
Varkey Teacher Ambassadors also act as an advocate for World Teacher Day by supporting the call for stronger international teacher training and on-going professional development and support.
We welcome our members and can’t wait to see what their hard work, dedication and passion will bring to the wider teaching communities.
