Madrassah Website Coming Soon
The training was held in partnership with Faith Associates upcoming latest initiative, ‘madrassah.co.uk’, which has been created as a dedicated hub for Madrassahs and Supplementary Schools.
A key aspect of ‘madrassah.co.uk’ will be the Madrassah Quality Standards Framework (MQSF) written, developed and piloted by Faith Associates. The MQSF is specifically designed for the Islamic education sector and brings together legal requirements and good Madrassah practices that will enable Mosques, Madrassahs and Supplementary Schools to meet standards for: Safeguarding, Health and Safety, Effective teaching and learning and Organizational governance. The MQSF offers accreditation to Madrassahs that have adopted the framework. This accreditation promotes the excellent work a Madrassah is doing that can then be showcased on a national and international level as an exemplar for other Madrassahs to follow. The accreditation levels include Mizan (Bronze), Kausar (Silver) and Firdaus (Gold).
‘Madrassah.co.uk’ also sees the creation of a ‘National Association of Madrassahs (NAM). The NAM will serve as an information and resource hub of Madrassahs across the UK. The adoption of the MQSF will convert into automatic inclusion to the NAM.
Faith Associates prides itself on the success it has achieved in providing governance and strategy services to the Muslim community. We remain committed to providing aid and assistance to Mosques, Madrassahs and Imams wherever it is required.
