This chapter pioneers in demonstrating the development of Muslim teachers underway in the maktab education sector of the United Kingdom. Over the years, Muslim religious institutions and their respective personnel have been subjected to increased deliberation in public discourse. Questions have been raised regarding the role and the various activities undertaken by them in preparing Muslim children for life in the wider society. Nonetheless, within some sections of the Muslim community, a different kind of focus has intensified. This relates to the quality of learning in these makātib. Of the many important features, the primary significance relates to how these teachers address the key aspect of classroom behaviour. This novel chapter offers insights elicited directly from these teachers about the value of their services and a reflective account of the nature of the training they had received to enhance their knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills in teaching and learning, with a particular focus on behaviour education.
