Teachers Skills Programme  

In conjunction with the Heads of Departments, the S I Madressa Management Team has committed to making 2017 a year of training where ALL staff members will undergo the TSP (Teachers Skills Programme) as a prerequisite to the new Tarbiyyah Curriculum that we intend to adopt from 2018, insh'Allah.

Our first training session is arranged on the 4th-5th of February, 2017 and the Micro teach on 11th February 2017 at Stanmore where an initial group of 24 teachers will undergo training.
Details of the TSP are outlined below and consist of two full day sessions (Saturday and Sunday) and a practical element session one week later (not a full day).

Details of the Programme

The TSP is a three day program facilitated by Sayyid Aliraza Naqvi who has completed his Cert Ed (PTTLS, DTTLS and CTTLS) and is currently completing his Masters in Education.

The modules covered in the first two days of the programme include:

  • Why teach?
  • Role and responsibility of a madrasah teacher
  • Planning and planning skills
  • Inclusive learning
  • Assessment
  • Reflective practice and personal journal

Day three 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.

To be a part of the first 24 participants completing their training, please click here to complete the form. Please note that spaces are on a first-come first-serve basis.
