Background

Education is the Manifestation Of Human Aspirations and only great teachers help to create great minds. India
has a long tradition of knowledge creation and highlighting cultural, humanitarian values. Teachers have
always played a crucial role in motivating students to contribute to shaping the ideals of the nation and its
development. India also has a long and rich tradition of bonding between teacher and disciple. It is the innate
nature of our country to churn out one success story after other of the Guru Shishya Parampara from all walks
and streams of life.
Referring to our rich traditional system of the Gurukul where there was a closely knit teaching leaming process
at the core, NTC not only strengthens the Teacher-Student connect but has also created a progressive
community Of Teachers. At NTC, not only the rural-urban teachers are connected, but they also bond with
their Indian peers across the continents and enrich their own perspectives. They are engaged in meaningful
debate, dialogues, intercultural encounters and exchange of ideas on a number of thoughtfully designed
issues. This helps the teachers to understand national issues and equip them to play an instrumental role in
overcoming challenges through their work. The invited speakers are experts consisting of policy makers,
thought leaders and business leaders.
