Secondary Teacher Education Programme

The Secondary Teacher Education Programme (STEP) is for practicing and prospective teachers wishing to embark on a career in teaching within the wider Aga Khaninfo-icon Network of Institutions, with a particular focus on teaching The Institute of Ismaili Studies’ Secondary Curriculum at the Ismaili Religious Education Centres (RECs) to students aged 11-16. STEP takes exceptional graduates and works with them to develop their skills and shape them into teachers and mentors who can inspire and teach. The master’s level teacher preparation aspect of STEP is being undertaken through a pioneering collaboration between the UCL Institute of Education, SOAS University of London and the Institute of Ismaili Studies.
