|Global Teacher Prize|
Applications and nominations for this year’s Global Teacher Prize organised in collaboration with UNESCO and in strategic partnership with Dubai Cares, a UAE-based global philanthropic organisation opened on 6 May 2023 and closed on 25 June 2023. The prize is open to working teachers who teach children that are in compulsory schooling or are between the ages of five and eighteen. Teachers who teach children age 4+ in an Early Years government-recognised curriculum are also eligible, as are teachers who teach on a part-time basis, and teachers of online courses. Teachers must spend at least 10 hours per week teaching and plan to remain in the profession for the next 5 years. It is open to teachers in every kind of school and, subject to local laws, in every country in the world.
The 10 finalists were selected from over 7,000 nominations and applications from 130 countries around the world.
Now in its eighth year, the USD 1 million Global Teacher Prize is the largest prize of its kind.
It was set up to recognise one exceptional teacher who has made an outstanding contribution to the profession as well as to shine a spotlight on the important role teachers play in society. By unearthing thousands of stories of heroes that have transformed young people’s lives, the prize hopes to bring to life the exceptional work of millions of teachers all over the world.
Helping to raise the bar of respect for the teaching profession, the winner will be chosen from the top 10 finalists by the Global Teacher Prize Academy, made up of prominent individuals.
The winner will be announced on November 8th at an awards ceremony taking place at UNESCO’s General Conference at its Paris headquarters
