"Creating a spiritual & vibrant community based on the values and practices of the Islamic Shia Ithna-Ashari faith by developing the potential of its members, engaging with the wider society and serving the needs of humanity worldwide"
Part of the feedback from our Parents Survey indicated that Parents were not aware of the overall objectives for Madrasah and would like to be better informed.
We have therefore published our objective tracker which gives a high level view of our three areas of focus for 2015.
These three aims create the focus for the year however there is much work taking place alongside these objectives to ensure the Madrasah is running smoothly week on week. The document is therefore not an exhaustive list of work carried out but highlights the main areas of action towards achieving the objectives.
We hope this better informs you as to the improvement work taking place at the Madrasah this year.
Due to changes in our implementation plan this is no longer a single role but we are building a small team. If you are interested in joining the team and supporting on mini projects towards full implementation please get in touch.
We have recently purchased a new technology solution to help store and manage student and class data.
The new software will allow us to be more efficient in our communication between Madrasah, classroom and home and will release capacity from the Admin team who can then better support the teachers directly.
The software now needs to be configured and integrated into the Madrasah for full roll out in Jan 2016.
We are looking for someone with experience in IT and database systems - although this is not a requirement, who can spare up to 3 hrs a week for the next few months to map the system to our current structures and integrate it towards live implementation in Jan 2016.
