Teachers and Administrators Award Online Application Form 2022 Modalities on Application and Selection Process for the 2022 Sosu’s Best Teachers Award 1. INTRODUCTION The second Sosu’s Best Teachers Award is being launched today 18th November 2022 with the object of raising the prestige of teachers and administrators deserving public recognition, working in Basic and Higher Secondary Schools in the Madina constituency. The Teacher’s Award has been in existence in the constituency and run by the Municipal Education Directorate on traditional lines without any major prize recognition. As part of the Working Policy Document on education, the blueprint of the Office of the MP, he promised to run a four-year best teachers award scheme for teachers in the constituency. The MP’s vision to provide quality parliamentary leadership differently, led to the creation of the Madina EDUScheme, which is the Education wing in the Office of the MP responsible for all the educational needs of all schools and students in the Madina constituency. The Madina Eduscheme is therefore charged to carry out this all-important assignment on behalf of the MP. To make this exercise very professional and devoid of political influence, the MP requested that the application and selection process should be made fair for all prospective teachers in the constituency. He, therefore, asked that the CEO reach out to professionals in academia to help in selecting the best teacher for the constituency. In this second edition, the number of awards has been categorised as follows: I. 6 Awards 4 best teachers and 2 administrators II. 2 Awards Long service award for meritorious teachers III. 2 Awards Long service award for meritorious administrators IV. 2 Awards Recognition for project heads 2.
