Teacher Selection Process

It is important from the perspective of transparency that a student is aware of the process that the center goes through in selecting teachers. Each teacher must go through a number of stages. An examination in the Arabic language that is equivalent to a Master examination. A period of training that is no less than 6 weeks. Theoretical examinations take place to consolidate the training. Practical tests in front of the teaching committee that is formed from teachers with vast experience in teaching Arabic to non native speakers. A final practical examination in front of the same committee to determine the period that is required for him to be suitable to enter teaching according to the standards of the Kalimah Center.
The Kalimah Center also has a number of well experienced staff that assist the center in carrying out the examination of new teachers.

  •  Ustadh Musa Shoukat (The director of the centre)
  •  Ustadh Mohammed Ahmad (deputy director of the centre)
  •  Ustadh Ahmed Shafi (Director of online learning)

All of the above Directors and Senior Staff members have also chosen to be with the students in the class room despite their numerous responsibilities to benefit the students with the knowledge they have.
