Nida Trust was invited by the Ta’allum Group based in Doha to evaluate 6 schools. Consultants from the Nida Trust worked with the Ta’allum Group over a week to evaluate the 6 schools. A final report was presented to the directors and the principals focussing on the following criteria:
- Leadership & management
- Teaching & learning
- Performance management
- Assessment & monitoring
- Parental engagement
- Resource management
- Recruitment & Retention
The final report was written based on thorough investigation of evidence. The report provided the positives, weaknesses and recommendations. Nida Trust will be working closely with the Ta’allum Group over 2011 – 2012 to support their institutions to further raise their standards.
Nida Trust continues to work with educational institutions and prominent educationists in South Africa to support schools, teachers and students to raise standards. In 2009, three consultants from the Nida Trust visited South Africa to carry out a number of teachers training workshops covering teaching & learning, curriculum development, leadership training. More than 60 teachers attended various workshops from different educational institutions.
Nida Trust consultants also delivered workshops for young people focussing on key leadership skills and concepts. More than 40 young people aged 15 – 21 years old attended the workshops.
Nida Trust continues to enjoy strong connections with Turkey. Over the past 5 years we have taken 2 Educational Leaders’ tours to Turkish schools and sites of cultural and Islamic significance. We have also taken a tour of community leaders in October 2017, and a tour of our Rising Stars in February 2017. Our next tour is with our new Rising Stars in February 2019.
We are grateful for the generosity of Turkish educational institutions and agencies who host us. We also work closely with Turkish schools and the educational sector sharing best practice. Our tours and Turkish programmes have been telecast and screened on British TV.
