Teachers from across 131 countries are taking advantage of the ‘free-of-cost’ professional platform. The app, launched at the Global Teachers’ Meet, has garnered 4 million learning engagements, set to quadruple by 2025.
Centre for Teacher Accreditation recently launched its enhanced native app CENTA, to simplify access to learning resources for educators across the globe. The web platform, embraced by 1 million teachers from 131 countries in under 4 years, now ranks as the world’s largest platform for teachers, boasting 4 million learning engagements in the last year alone.
CENTA app will debut an interactive community feature on October 5, 2023, World Teachers’ Day to connect teachers & foster collaboration, thus transforming classrooms worldwide. This free-of-cost platform leverages blockchain-based digital credentials and recommendation engine to support and track professional development. CENTA also functions as a multifaceted platform, certifying teacher competencies and is widely used by employers across the sector. The native app, on Google Play and Apple App Store (ranked in top 100 education apps), was launched during the Global Teachers’ Meet, focusing on teachers’ role in shaping the economy. Dr. Carlos Vargas (International Task Force on Teachers, UNESCO) advocated global mobility as a remedy for teacher shortages. The event united educators, policymakers and business leaders towards collaborative idea sharing.
Teachers invested in their learning and growth are the core of CENTA’s existence and were recognised at the event as ‘Learning Champions’: Eric Leo Asiamah (Ghana), Anukriti Kabra (India), Sima Ghosh Dastidar (Sultanate of Oman), Kiangwi Isaiah (Kenya), Shrishti Shakya (Nepal), Nivedita Yadav (India), MA, Guia G. Belarmino (Philippines) and Aamira Mobin (Saudi Arabia).
Ramya Venkataraman, Founder and CEO at CENTA said, “CENTA aims to make teaching aspirational by fostering career growth, earnings and recognition for competent teachers. 1 million teachers worldwide accessing this platform is a milestone for CENTA and the teaching profession. Employers (private schools, governments, edtechs) actively supporting this give a huge impetus to teaching careers.”
