- Community Development Seminars on Education
The MCB has initiated a national programme of seminars on Education. The aim of these seminars is to raise awareness of important issues, increase participation from the Muslim community in education i.e. governors and to create a focus on priorities that will be most effective in raising attainment levels and ensuring that spiritual, moral social and cultural needs of Muslim pupils are met adequately.
- Muslims into Teaching
To overcome poor representation of Muslims in the teaching profession we are encouraging and promoting more Muslims into the teaching profession through various activities.
