Qatar Foundation’s (QF) Pre-University Education (PUE) kicked off the 2017-2018 academic year recently with its second annual forum.
The PUE Forum 2017, held at the Qatar National Convention Centre, was attended by more than 1,000 people.
The event gave employees the opportunity to network, celebrate achievements, share ideas, and build long-lasting relationships between teachers and staff members across all of QF’s PUE schools and centres.
Buthaina A al-Nuaimi, president of PUE, gave a speech highlighting recent success stories and welcoming the new academic year.
“The success of PUE doesn’t depend on one person only, everyone who works for PUE is important to us. It is our impressive and highly professional faculty supported by a strong and competent administrative team that allows us to fulfil our vision of leading learning,” said al-Nuaimi.
The forum featured an awards ceremony – a result of last year’s initiative – which was designed to recognise exceptional efforts, as well as build morale, motivation, and mutual respect for all PUE employees.
Award categories included ‘Exceptional Contribution to Collaboration across Schools’, ‘Exceptional Contribution to Student Welfare’, ‘Best Education Initiative’, ‘Outstanding Teacher’, ‘Outstanding Practitioner – Academic’, and ‘Outstanding Practitioner – Non Academic’.
Samuel Abrams, along with Essam Quassed, won ‘Best Education Initiative’ from Awsaj Academy.
“Schools should change by being learner focused, learner led, and learner paced,” said Abrams.
Jamila al-Hemmari, Arabic teacher at Qatar Academy Doha, said: “I am excited about working towards my own professional goals over the next 12 months. I have a lot of ideas worth sharing in the field of education and would be incredibly honoured to be recognised at the PUE Forum 2018.”
PUE, part of QF, houses nine schools and academic institutions in Qatar, and continually strives to nurture academic excellence and innovation.
