Saeeda Ahmed, Founding Director, Education Partnerships UK in a statement said,
“A post-COVID-19 world needs flexibilities and new solutions that enable multiple ways of economic participation. The education and economic participation must be inclusive of all people succeeding and enable economic activities regardless of where someone is located. The education sector has often focused on career and job creation rather than entrepreneurship therefore substantially limiting livelihoods with Covid-19 lockdowns. The $4 Trillion Ethical and halal economy creates substantial opportunities for entrepreneurship, social inclusion and creation of jobs not just for Muslims but all interested in the Ethical space. It is profoundly important to create new ethical and business opportunities from the UK as a gateway to the rest of the world. Halal is actually ethical, where the entire process of operating the business is about environmental sustainability, ethically dealing with business associates, team and honesty towards various stakeholders.”
She further added,
“Our approach is inclusive and aims to increase the success rate of start ups by intense ecosystem of support incorporating business planning, financial literacy, British accredited skills-based training, mentoring and the right types of support networks. The entrepreneurs will not only tap into the $5 trillion ethical and halal consumer market but also provide inclusive lifelines for struggling economies and societies”.
Dr Tausif Malik, Founder of Halal Angels Network said,
“With over 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, the Halal industry offers tremendous opportunities across the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia. Based on the constant track record of delivering quantity education across the globe for over 15 years with a great experience on helping individuals achieve their career & professional goals, we felt that Educational Partnerships UK were the right partners to provide training and certification to aspiring entrepreneurs”.
Malik further opined,
“As education & knowledge plays an important part in successful decision making, therefore we partnered with Educational Partnerships UK to provide certificate courses in entrepreneurship, skill development, Islamic finance. Education Partnerships UK is an innovative company working with British Awarding Organisations, Colleges and Universities to provide British qualifications and accreditation for our national and international clients. Also we have worked with Saeeda Ahmed, Founding Director and have great experience with them”.
Both Halal Angels Network & Education Partnerships UK work together to training and certificate courses in entrepreneurship, skill development, Islamic finance to aspiring entrepreneurs.
