Madrassah Management

Faith Associates has developed a unique Madrassah management system to support the teaching and learning of young people for Mosque based Madrassahs or Supplementary Schools. The management system seeks to support and nurture the student learning experience and has a very clear focus on protecting children and young people in your care from harm through a robust approach to safeguarding.

The management system incorporates the latest safeguarding principles, management, operational and procedural frameworks to support Mosque, Madrassah and school staff to run the educational centre.

The management system is non-theological. It is primarily a comprehensive series of tools, templates, training, policies, procedures and frameworks developed to support management to deliver an effective student learning experience. Whatever your curriculum this system will be able to manage your Madrassah.

Madrassah Policies

Why a Madrassah Quality Standards Framework (MQSF)?

1000’s of British Muslim children attend Madrassah (Quranic after school or weekend classes) to engage and learn the Quran in Arabic and receive Islamic instruction. Much time is spent by those children in varying degrees of educational quality. Faith Associates has developed the MQSF following years of research, consultation, support and teaching within the Madrassah and Mosque arena.

The MQSF combines legal requirements with outstanding Madrassah practice in order to enable them to meet standards and excel in: child protection and safeguarding, health & safety, effective teaching and learing, organisation and governance.

The MQSF 3 tier Accreditation Framework (Mizan, Kausar, Firdaus) is designed to raise standards in the Madrassah sector and covers:

  • Policies & Procedures
  • Structure and Management
  • Staff Recruitment & HR
  • Student Admissions
  • Teaching Strategies
  • Madrassah Curriculum
  • Performance Assessment
  • Child Protection

The MQSF has been piloted in a number of Madrassahs which have yielded positive results. Through feedback and cooperation with these institutions, we have made relevant changes and finalised the documentation.
