The British Muslim Awards recognise a range of achievements from outstanding individuals across the UK who positively impact business, charity, sport, arts, culture, religious advocacy, education and medicine among others, while simultaneously and unknowingly battle negative stereotypes.

The seventh British Muslim Awards will be held at The Bradford Hotel on Wednesday January 30th in Bradford, where finalists will gather for a glamorous night to celebrate their success.

Quality Teaching Staff is one of the finalists in the Entrepreneur of the Year category.

Syed added: "Our aim is to become the leading education recruitment provider and we are certain that we can achieve this goal as we are in the process of creating a unique product in line with the education system in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates."
