His consistently outstanding evaluations have led to regular invitations to train hundreds of teachers at Muslim schools across the country and online. One of the few qualified Muslim male English teachers in the UK, he has worked for primary and secondary Muslim schools in Leicester since 2006 serving in roles as varied as assistant head, staff, governor and Islamic Studies Coordinator.

In 2016, Tushar was recruited and worked for Leicester’s only National Support School, the Ofsted-outstanding Babington Community College, where he further developed his teaching skills in an outstanding English department.

Tushar recently returned from a year’s teaching in Kuwait, extending his experience to teaching Year 12 pupils and the rigorous International Baccalaureate qualification in English Language and Literature. He is a GCSE examiner for both Edexcel and AQA.


Saira Hanif qualified from the highly acclaimed School Centred Initial Teacher Training Programme (SCITT) in 2009. In only her first year of full-time teaching, she brought her ability to forge incredible relationships with her class and teach engaging, exciting lessons ?at? Al-Aqsa Primary School in 2010. Due to this, and a string of ‘outstanding’ lesson observations from Ofsted, BSI and SLT inspections, Saira was awarded the AMS UK Primary Teacher of the Year in April 2011. Because she has worked successfully in a variety of state and Muslim schools, Saira brings valuable experience to her training sessions along with positive energy and a desire to inspire.
