CENTA Teaching Professionals’ Olympiad (TPO) is a first-of-its-kind national competition to reward, recognize and celebrate teachers and also the first step towards the CENTA Certificates.
Based on the tremendous response for the first two editions, the third edition TPO 2017 is being held in 28 cities across India and an additional centre in Dubai, with 14 subject tracks plus three Challenger tracks offered! TPO 2017 is supported by The Hindu.
