Certificate in Education (CEd)

> Program Overview


Who doesn’t remember some of his past teachers? Being a teacher is very honorable and memorable position. It is a position that may influence and shape a person’s future. Islam has paid considerable attention to teachers for their being the first brick in the structure of social development. They are the cause of guiding and developing behaviors and the minds of individuals as well as communities. They are among the most beneficial people in society and thus among the best of people.

“The best of people are those who are most beneficial to people.” (Al-Mu’jam Al-Awsat hadeeth, 5787)

And thus, it is important that a teacher follows correct Islamic teachings and understands them without any crookedness.

In general, a person who wants to understand and act upon his religion while being an educator needs to complete two separate types of study; one in education and another in Islamic studies. International Open University offers an incredible opportunity to combine both, while gaining knowledge in education and being taught Islamic teachings.

This program can later be applied towards the associates or bachelors degree in education.
