Hi all,
I need your help with naming  for a training program. Our  education bureau is planning a program for young teachers who have got great achievements in their teaching or managing work . The program will provide some leadership training for the young capable teachers and train them to become principal in the future.  Can you name for the program? Something like top teachers program or youth elite program?   Your ideas will be greatly appreciated.

What are you trying to accomplish in the name? Your selections "Top Teachers Program" and "Youth Elite Program" both seem like you want the name of the program to indicate very strongly that these people are being singled out because they are better than most. Is that what you want to achieve?

If you want the name of the program to reflect the content of the program, something like "Educational Leadership Training" or "Educational Leadership Program" would be appropriate.

Keep in mind that the name _should_ reflect what the program really is. Don't pick a flashy and impressive sounding name that doesn't tell anyone anything. Even "Top Teachers Program" could be interpreted a few ways, such as one for training people to be top teachers by learning from other top teachers. "Youth Elite Program" is so vague that all it tells you is that it's for young people who are somehow "elite". Are they rich? From prestigious families? Excellent athletes? Why are they "elite"?

Make the name make sense, so when people see it on a resume they'll understand the significance of being selected for the program.

Very brief and good names. Thanks a lot. I just made a list of those names for my supervisor and I don't know which name is chosen eventually.

Thank you very much for your answer. You share the same idea as one of my close friends and   the name of the program should reflect the content of program and let people know what it is about exactly when they see it, not just empty and flashy words.  Yes, people who are selected for the program are indeed better than most.

Is the word "elite" used in a derogatory sense?
