After months of deliberations we have chosen ten Finalists from the 30,000 applications and nominations we received from 173 countries. You can find full details of the Global Teacher Prize Top 10 Finalists here.
One of our ten remarkable teachers will win our annual $US 1 million award given to recognise a truly exceptional teacher.
|All of the teachers in our final shortlist have taken their work far beyond what is generally expected of a teacher. In the classroom they have inspired and enlightened their pupils, but their innovative and original approaches to education have ensured the impact of their work has touched communities beyond their schools, both locally and globally.|
The winner of the prize will be announced at the Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai on Sunday 18th March 2018.
