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.

Sunnat or Innovation?
The books of Islamic laws and traditions of both Shias and Ahle Sunnat mention innumerable recommended prayers. Some of the prayers exceed a thousand units. The prayer of Tarawih is among the recommended prayers of the Ahle Sunnat and it is performed in congregation in the nights of Ramazan at an estimated twenty units daily.
