A UNIVERSITY of Worcester graduate has been named as a finalist in the Global Teacher Awards, recognising some of the very best teachers from around the world.
Dr Swaroop Sampat-Rawal, who earned her PhD at Worcester and last month was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University in recognition of her commitment to education, has been shortlisted from thousands of entries for the highly prestigious award.
Dr Sampat-Rawal, who teaches in India, said: “Through this recognition I want to reach out to the children and teachers of the world; I want to share my work and vision of life skills education and pre-vocation education for
Sustainable Development Goals to ensure our children become happy resilient and become socially emotionally and economically empowered.”
The prize, now in its fifth year, is awarded by the Varkey Foundation. The final 50 will be narrowed down by a committee to 10 finalists, who will be revealed in February.
The 10 will then be invited to Dubai for the award ceremony at the Global Education and Skills Forum on March 24 where the winner will be announced.
