The Tarbiyah curriculum has been developed by the Madrasah Centre of Excellence which is a part of the Islamic education arm of the World Federation of KSIMC. The global parent organisation has existed for over 30 years and consists of about 125,000 community members worldwide, mainly in Canada, East Africa, India, Middle East, Pakistan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. Our motto is ‘We Exist to Serve’ and our core values include spreading the true message of Islam as a religion that emphasises peace and the upholding of human values.
Having accumulated a vast base of educational information over the years, it was decided to create a new framework for the Islamic education of children. A range of educational experts were brought together to assist in developing the Tarbiyah curriculum based on an integrated syllabus, as opposed to the traditional approach of splitting topics into various subjects such as laws, history and ethics.
The syllabus is founded on a Qur’anic worldview and links all learning back to the Qur’an as its primary source. The curriculum is delivered in a student-centred style which caters for contemporary learners and a variety of students at different learning stages.
Teachers are encouraged to be ‘a guide on the side, not a sage on the stage.’
