School Q&A

How many categories of winners are there for CTA 2024
There will be two categories of winners – School Level winners and National Level winners.
How does NIE administer both awards
All nomination forms are to be submitted to the respective schools by 12 January 2024.

School Level Awards

The School Level Awards offer schools a means to acknowledge their most 'Caring Teachers' through a preliminary selection. Nomination forms from the public should be submitted to the schools of the nominated teachers, and each school may select up to a maximum of five winners. For mixed-level schools, they can submit a total of 10 winners – five from each level.

Upon receipt of the winners' names from the schools, the CTA 2024 Organising Committee will provide specially designed award certificates that schools can present to these winners. These teachers will then be officially recognised as 'Caring Teachers' and thus serve as important role models within the school.

Nominations are invited from the public between 11 September 2023 and 12 January 2024.

National Level Awards

Schools have the option to nominate one of their School Level winners for the National Level Awards. In the case of Mixed-Level schools, they have the opportunity to nominate two teachers for the National Level awards, which can be one Secondary level teacher and one Junior College teacher, or one Primary level teacher and one Secondary level teacher. When submitting nominations to the NIE, schools should clearly indicate their nominee for the National Level Awards.

Schools must complete this process by 29 February 2024, and to submit the names of both the School Level winners and National Level nominees to the NIE.

Following the nomination and submission phase, short-listed nominees will undergo interviews conducted by a panel of judges. This panel includes representatives from the NIE, ExxonMobil, and external organisations.

The final selection of the National Level winners will be made by the judges.

The winners, along with their Principals, will receive invitations to attend the CTA 2024 Award Ceremony.
