The lessons and teaching guides for Module 1 (The Creator and His Creation)and Module 2 (Divine Guidance) will be available for the madrasah term commencing in September 2016.
Module 3 (Rasulullah (s) – Communicating the Message) and Module 4 (The Aimmah (a) – Safeguarding the Message) will be ready for the following term beginning January 2017.

The completion date for the whole curriculum is 31 March 2017.


Appropriate training for the teachers for teaching the lessons will be provided before the implementation commences.
The learning resources team has been developing lesson-specific resources for as the lessons and teaching guides are being prepared.

Evaluation of MCE's Teacher Development Programmes

MCE has commissioned Maria Pattinson to conduct an independent evaluation of the teacher development programmes over the last few years. The research is being overseen by a cross-regional steering group. Maria is academically grounded in current teacher training methodologies through Dr. Ruth Mantin at the University of Chichester, UK.

Responses from the preliminary survey carried out with participants of the 2-day Teaching Skills Programme (TSP) and the follow-up Microteach sessions (MT) have been very encouraging. 105 responses were received out of a possible total of 196, which indicates a high level of engagement.

The Madinah and Bab al-Ilm Iran programme marked its 14th consecutive anniversary in the summer of 2016, with this being the first time that I decided to embark upon the course following my university education. This was also the first ever year in the programme that participants were bestowed the honour of being guests in the holy city of Qom for the birth anniversary of Sayeda Masouma (sa), as well as being in Mashhad for the corresponding celebrations for Imam Ridha (as).

It was such a golden and lifetime opportunity for me to come and perform the Ziyarat of Lady Masuma (sa) and Imam Redha (as) as I progressed in my proximity to Allah (SWT)
