The Caring Teacher Awards 2020

The Caring Teacher Awards is a biennial event that pays tribute to teachers who show care and concern for the holistic development of their students, and go the extra mile to ensure their charges grow up to be confident and independent learners.

Started in 1996, the Caring Teacher Awards is organised by the National Institute of Education, Singapore with support from ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd and the Ministry of Education.

CTA has a new logo!

NIE NTU, Singapore collaborated with Nanyang Polytechnic in October 2018 to design a new CTA logo. The winning logo is designed by Mr Charles Yao, School of Design, Nanyang Polytechnic.

"The Caring Teachers Awards (CTA) logo takes inspiration from a dot. In every design process, the dot is instrumental because it is the starting point in the formation of a cell that brings life; it also represents the end point to a process. In this logo, the dot is used to represent a burning ball, the sun. Orange is used to depict the warmth that it generates like that of a teacher, driven by passion to inspire lives. The application of dots to a medium can be developed to form lines that ultimately presents complex lines in a space. Here, the space is interrupted as a dimension of relationships between students and teachers wherein teachers connect many dots to form shapes; shapes that become the building blocks of our nation, our people. Teachers are the architects in education. They shape every life with values and fill every dot with knowledge all because they care and love the little red dot that we call home."
