CENTA Set To Add $2 Bn To Education Economy
Following the Union Budget 2022, CENTA's(Centre for Teacher Accreditation) thrust of creating pools of competent, certified teachers has become even more relevant
Centre for Teacher Accreditation (CENTA), a platform to assess and certify teachers' competencies, connect teachers to opportunities and support their upskilling, today announced that they are now India’s largest teacher community with 6,00,000 active teachers using the platform. EdTech is at the forefront of the current boom in the technology sector, and there is an immediate need for high-quality teachers to lead, guide, facilitate and mentor this growth.
Addressing this need for high-quality teachers, CENTA, founded in 2014, offers certifications that assess teachers' competencies and is helping to bridge the gap between motivated teachers and better opportunities – preference in private school recruitment, creation of resource person pools in governments, supplemental earnings and so on. The growing roster of committed teachers has increased to 6,00,000 spread across India and 40,000 across the Philippines, Nigeria, Bangladesh, UAE, and the UK.
CENTA has the potential to add $2 Billion to the economy by solving one of the biggest problems in the sector – consistent, high-quality teacher supply. It plans to continue its rapid growth rate and has projections to be at least a 2 million teacher community in 2022. Being the creators of market-based teacher certification, CENTA has empowered thousands of teachers across nations with better career progression through CENTA Standards, a well-defined and globally benchmarked competency framework. CENTA Founder & CEO, Ms. Ramya is also supporting the development of India’s National Professional Standards for Teachers through her role in the NCTE committee now.
