The importance of teachers can be understood by the quote of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) where he said that "I have been sent only as a teacher to you". The Prophet (SAW) reached the hearts and minds of people through various educational activities. The role of a teacher/educator in the society is both significant and valuable.
AMP appreciates the role of Teachers & Educators and the extraordinary part they play in the lives of students during their formative years of development. It further recognizes their outstanding services and invaluable contribution to the Students’ lives in particular and the Society at large.
Keeping the above in mind, we had launched AMP National Award for Excellence in Education in 2017 wherein 82 Education Professionals were felicitated from across the country. This year again we will be announcing these awards on Teacher’s Day i.e. 5th September 2018.
