The Caring Teacher Awards (CTA) 2012 is open for nominations from now to 30 November 2011. Vote for your favourite teacher now!    

CTA aims to acknowledge and reward teachers in our schools who show care and concern for the holistic development of their students and go the extra mile to ensure their charges grow up to be confident and independent learners.

In partnership with ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, and with support of the Ministry of Education, National Institute of Education, Singapore, will present the awards in April 2012. One teacher each from a primary school, a secondary school and a junior college/centralised institute will be honoured at the CTA 2012 award ceremony. These awards will be used for the teachers' personal and professional development.

Nominees for the awards should fulfill the following criteria:

(a) Be a full-time teacher in a primary school, a secondary school or junior college/centralised institute in Singapore;
(b) Possess at least three years of teaching experience in Singapore; and
(c) Demonstrate exemplary character, initiative, integrity, altruism and a proven record of service to their schools and students.

While demonstration of good teaching practices and the ability to deliver excellent examination results are part of the selection criteria, the emphasis of the awards is on the humanistic qualities of the teaching profession. Members of the public including students, parents, teachers and principals are invited to submit their nominations. Short-listed candidates will be interviewed for final selection.

Closing date for nominations is 30 November 2011.
