The iSyllabus For Schools Team

The iSyllabus for Schools project was undertaken by a dedicated team of writers, scholars, ‘Ulema, qualified school teachers, editors and designers. Our Workbooks and Teachers Packs, including Lesson Plans, Presentations with audio-visual content, Handouts and Worksheets, were reviewed by three qualified teachers, to ensure that a rigorous application of modern educational pedagogy was consistently applied in the content.

All of our material has been piloted in numerous madrasahs and schools in the UK and abroad. The whole process of reviewing and feedback has been incorporated into the final editions of the Workbooks
