Launching a common platform for teachers from both government and private schools to get recognised, the Pearson Education Services has invited nominations for ‘Pearson Teaching Awards’ from teachers across India.

Speaking at a press conference, cricketer Anil Kumble, who is a part of the campaign, said that teachers are taken for granted. “Teachers shape our personalities and make us who we are today. But most of us do not bother to keep in touch with them,” said Kumble.

The awards will identify teachers who have made special contributions to the field of teaching and have shown outstanding contribution towards teaching children with special needs.

Among the 20 categories, there are 12 for ‘Excellence in Teaching’ awards which will be conferred for six government school teachers and six private school teachers.

 Two awards will be given for best pre-primary teachers, one each for a government and private schools. Along with this the teachers will also be awarded for innovation in teaching and outstanding performance in social contribution through teaching.
