Working as a teacher in Portugal

Global Teacher Prize Study/Galp Foundation reveals that the Portuguese trust their teachers and that they were important and inspiring both in relation to their formal education and their lives in general

The launch of the 2nd edition of Global Teacher Prize Portugal (GTPP), an annual award made to teachers who have developed approaches regarded as innovative for meeting specific challenges, has a new feature this year: the disclosure of a study that measures the perception of the Portuguese with regard to the role of the teacher in their lives and the educational system in general. José Jorge Teixeira, a physics and chemistry teacher at Dr. Júlio Martins Secondary School, in Chaves, was elected the best Portuguese teacher in the 1st edition.
