10 Reasons you should Join the Olive Tree Study Support Team!

  1. Merits of teaching the Quran

Teaching Quran is highly meritous occupation, and something that will count as a sadaqah jariyah for the teacher insha’Allah.

The best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it.

(Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 4739)

No matter what your level of experience, we believe that everyone has something to offer. There are available positions for trainees, qualified teachers, even head teachers!

Working as a teacher can be made more challenging if your colleagues do not understand your religious views, or the environment does not conform to an Islamic ideal.

At Olive Tree Study support, we do our best to ensure that your working environment is halal, so that you can focus on teaching your pupils to the best of your ability.

Tahera Akther, the founder and headmistress of Olive Tree study support, founded the original school to provide a professional, fun, safe, and creative place for children to
build a solid and profound foundation in the Islamic faith, growing in the love
for Allah, the Quran and His beloved Prophet (SAW).

Since then, the reputation of the school has grown, and the demand for places has been so high, that Tahera was forced to opened new schools to meet the demand. She recently opened their fourth branch in East London making  Olive Tree Study support one of the most established and respected Islamic schools in the area.
