Out of the 15 Madaris under CoEJ SAN, 12 Madaris have rolled out the Tarbiyah Curriculum.

The main themes of the MLT workshop were the essence of the Tarbiyah Curriculum, sharing of best practices and discussing the opportunities and challenges the Madaris are facing in rolling out the Tarbiyah Curriculum.

Madaris were also given an opportunity to liaise, network and share information with each other as well as proactively plan for the future. During the MLT workshop, CoEJ SAN went through their achievements of the 2019 contract and also created the contract for 2020 together with the Madaris.
