What we do
Although the origins go back to 1995, ACTE was set up in September 2002
- Facilitate partnerships between education providers, policy makers,
Muslim children and their families.
- Support schools to accommodate the needs of Muslim children with regard
to their culture, education, faith and language.
- The main focus of ACTE is to enable Muslim pupils and parents to engage
in an active dialogue with the education system.
- The management committee of ACTE consists of parents from black and
minority backgrounds, members of community associations, education psychologists,
teachers and educationalists, and those involved in promoting a society
drawn from different cultures.
Examples of our work
- Promote greater understanding and awareness of Muslim culture and
civilisation to the wider community. • To engage and facilitate Muslim
parents to recognise their role and their responsibilities in helping
to promote diversity in the curriculum and the mainstream education
system in Northern Ireland.
- To create a bridge between the education system and the Muslim community
by promoting constructive dialogue to accommodate faith, culture, language
and ethical requirements.
- To work with teachers and policy makers to identify practical ways
to adapt to religious, cultural and linguistic diversity.
- Produce relevant teaching materials for the language, citizenship
and human rights curricula.
