Teachers Skills Programme - Great Success
Sign up for March 2017

The TSP is Mandatory for all teachers to undertake in 2017.

People pay to go on such courses yet it’s at our disposal. Every teacher should grab it with both hands!

On February 4th-5th and 11th, the S I Madressa in conjunction with the Council of European Jamaats, hosted their first Teachers Skills Programme.

The Teachers Skills Programme (TSP) is a three day program facilitated by Sayyid Aliraza Naqvi. In the first two days the module covers the necessity of teaching, the roles and responsibilities of a Madressa teacher, how to plan effectively, inclusive learning, assessment strategies, reflectives practices and personal journal. 

The third day focuses on micro-teaching where participants get the opportunity to practice the skills they have learnt in the first two days and get valuable feedback from their peers as well as the facilitator.

Alhamdulillah, the first session was a great success!

Children of Teachers - Drop Off & Pick Up  

Morning Drop-off
First lesson Teachers who have children at the Madressa can leave their children in the canteen in the morning so that they may be on time to their own classes. Classes 1-4 children will be escorted to their classes and Classes 5+ children will be asked to go to their classes just prior to 10:00am

Afternoon Pick-up
Teachers can escort children of teachers/volunteers straight to the dining area and do not have to take them outside to line-up at the end of the day. The children can then be collected from the dining area.

Madressa Timings  
Teachers must respect the timings for arrival at the Madressa, being in the classroom before students arrive for 1st lesson, dismissing students for break as well as Salaat on time and escorting students to their relevant exits at the end of the Madressa day

Classes 5+:
First lesson Teachers MUST be in their class room latest by 9.50am as children will start coming in from 9.55. Class 1-4 teachers to follow their respective timings and procedure

Classes 5-7:
Last lesson teachers MUST escort their students to the respective exit doors and hand them over to the parent or approved guardian. Do not leave the students on their own.

Late pick up:

Class 1-4:
At 1:30pm, teachers are to bring the students to the Canteen

Classes 5-7:

Registers 1: These will be collected by a Madressa helper from 12.45 onwards. Kindly ensure last lesson attendance is taken promptly. 

Registers 2: it is critical that you mark a TICK for present, 'A' for absent and 'L' for late, as outlined at the bottom of the registers. We are monitoring lateness and need first lesson teachers to record 'L' as appropriate.
