This Training is an essential part of the Teacher Development Programme. It was conducted by Sayyid Aliraza Naqvi who has completed his Master’s Degree in Education in the U.K.

The training program was facilitated jointly by the World Federation and Africa Federation. The Modules included: 

  • Role and Responsibility of a Madrasah Teacher
  • Lesson Planning and Planning Skills
  • Learning and Reflective Practice

Participants also had the opportunity to practice the skills learnt in the first two days and get feedback from peers as well as facilitators.

A Micro-teach lesson for the Teachers was held on 17th July 2016, facilitated by MCE Head and Facilitator, Naushad Bhai Mehrali.
The Micro Teach Session included: - 

  • Debrief session and sharing of experiences from the two days of Training.
  • The teachers were allocated into groups of 4-5 and were given the opportunity to teach on any topic they were comfortable with to a batch of students (other teachers) and an observer who was also one of the participants.
  • A debrief was conducted after the practice session to discuss general feedback from observations made and further tips regarding teacher-student relationship and classroom management.

The objective of this program is to increase skills of the teachers, and to shift their attitudes and behaviours so that they may be better able to support the learning of the students.
