The Global Teacher Prize competition is aimed at all teachers who are working from pre-school to 12th grade (regular or others).

Global teacher Prize Portugal

The progress of a country is measured by the quality of its education. Investing in education, in such a challenging time, with so many great changes, is investing in our children, in our families, in the country's quality of life, in the economy, in development and, above all, in the happiness of our children. Sharing ideas and experiences is a way of finding new solutions.

The prize, worth €30,000, is given annually to a selected teacher in recognition of his/her exceptional work with students and extraordinary contribution to the profession.
