The Muslim Teachers Association was established in 1979 and is a non-profit making organisation run by and for Muslim teachers. We aim to be the first point of call for Muslim teachers and educators alike, as well as people interested in the education of Muslim pupils and supporting Muslim teachers. It provides support and advice to Muslim teachers and addresses issues that Muslim teachers and pupils are facing in school. The Muslim teachers association provides a cohesive platform that allows positive dialogue amongst all faiths and none.

Autumn Half Term Message

I hope that you have had a good half term, and are looking forward to your half term break. We have been having many discussions about the 40th birthday celebration of the MTA next year-please save the date in your diary: Sunday 31st March 2019 – we look forward to seeing you and your colleagues there!

We are exploring a range of new and different ways of helping and supporting you in your schools and are looking to run some bespoke sessions for teachers- so if you, or any of your colleagues are applying for jobs or need help with interview techniques or would like an experienced headteacher to give you advice please let us know. We are also looking to develop other programmes and would be interested in your views.

This weekend I will be attending a Nisa-Nashim co-chairs event to see how Muslim and Jewish teachers can work together building on the experience developed over the last two years. On Friday I will be attending and NEU roundtable conference on Islamophobia- if you would like to make your views known- please contact me before Thursday.

We are looking for teachers who would like to support us in our work in supporting other Muslim teachers, so if you feel that you want to get involved we would like to hear from you.

I wish you all a restful break over half term.

Very best wishes to you all
Rukhsana Yaqoob
President of the Muslim Teachers’ Association
