Comments from previous delegates about the Islam course:
“There were so many things I took from the day that I can’t possibly put into words quickly, but suffice to say, I found it extremely informative and at times very touching”
Julie Purnell | Regional HR Business Partner – ITV West country
“I feel that more people should participate in course like that to gain a greater insighht to things we generally have litle knowledge about., and as we are all aware lack of knowledge lends itself greatly to discrimination”.
Anthony O’Farrell- Training Dept – HMP Liverpool
“I think I can say that I found this one of the most informative and helpful courses I have ever attended. It cut through any preconceptions I had about Islam and Muslim culture and it has really helped me to understand what it is like to be a Muslim in this country.
I would recommend this course without hesitation. Most enlightening”.
Iona Butler – Kent Adult Social Services
Doncaster & South Humber “After spending a day with you and the other people, representing the public and voluntary sectors learning about what being a Muslim in today’s world means I feel much more confident that I am better prepared to communicate with this important audience. It was quite an honour to sit at the back and watch one of the five prayer sessions”.
Barbara Mesa-Marketing and PR Manager
“..We were given a fascinating insight into Islam from the perspective of a woman. The speaker was very engaging, informative & it was apparent that she was dedicated to her faith. Every effort was made to answer all questions & once again this led to some very interesting discussion & debate”.
Valerie M Wordsworth – Service Improvement Assistant
“Everyone appreciated the spirit of openness and a willingness to share knowledge of the Muslim faith. Each member of staff who attended has come away from the course having gained a better understanding of Islam which will greatly assist us when working within the community”
Sally Fellows-Programme Manager-Tinsley Surestart
“I found the whole day to be extremely interesting and informative. It was refreshing to hear fact separated from myth and, perhaps most importantly, clearly defined the differences between religion and culture”.
Department of Trade & Industry, -Employment Services,
Isle of Man Government
“As a supervisor in a public service and as an individual I feel it is important to be aware of diversity in the organisation and the community it serves, this course has certainly educated me in aspects of Islam and I feel that I can encourage members of staff to attend and be confident that they will further their knowledge and awareness..”
Rhona J WaltonT/Administrative Supervisor
