El éxito del Global Teacher Prize ha inspirado a países de todo el mundo a establecer sus propios premios para encontrar y honrar a sus mejores profesores.
Hoy en día, hay más de 40 Premios Nacionales de Docentes en países de todo el mundo, desde América Latina hasta Europa, Medio Oriente, África y Asia. Esa cifra está creciendo rápidamente: 17 estados establecieron premios nacionales para docentes solo en 2017.
La Varkey Foundation se asocia con los organizadores de los Premios Nacionales de Maestros y ofrece asesoramiento experto sobre los procesos de solicitud y nominación, así como sobre los criterios para juzgar. La fundación también promueve los Premios nacionales de docentes en todo el mundo.

El Global Teacher Prize se creó para mejorar el respeto, la recompensa y la celebración de los docentes de todo el mundo. Lo hace enfocándose en grandes maestros y compartiendo sus notables historias. En última instancia, queríamos inspirar a los mejores candidatos posibles para que se unan a la profesión docente, y estamos encantados de que estos objetivos compartidos estén arraigándose con éxito en cada país.
