Workshops will cover a full day. Therefore each delegate should choose only one training session.

A. Assessment for Learning

Course Leader: Sajjid Sarwar

Assessment for Learning (AfL) is the process of seeking and interpreting evidence for use by learners and their teachers to decide where the learners are in their learning, where they need to go and how best to get there. This session will give delegates the chance to think about AfL and how they can ‘close the gap’ between a learner’s current situation and where they want to be in their learning and achievement.

Aimed at: Primary and Secondary teachers and leaders

Previously, Sajjid was the in the secondary sector for 15 years, including roles such as head of department head and deputy headteacher of a state-funded Muslim school. He has delivered a whole host of workshops for AMS UK on coaching, staff development and management.

B. Effective PE with Limited Resources


C. Mental Well Being

Course Leader: Muslim Youth Helpline

This module covers areas such as depression, anxiety, stress, anger, low self-esteem and eating disorders. Each issue is explored from a psychological perspective as well as looking at how faith, culture and environment have an impact on a student’s well being.

This course examines a series of real life case studies and exemplar schools that implement well being programmes. The impact of well being on academic performance is discussed and pro-active methods of maintaining the mental health of students is provided.

This module also reviews articles in the media concerning young Muslims and mental well being. With key statistics and data from MYH this course provides a thoroughly representative picture of the issues young Muslims are suffering from.

The course also provides the 6-step process used by the Muslim youth helpline officers on a daily basis and essential referral points are identified.

The mental well being module is an ideal platform for sharing best practices and provides a variety of resources (flash cards, mind maps and training packs) to the school that will empower them to offer support to their students in the most effective way.
