Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) and Qatar Financial Centre Authority (QFCA) have completed the training part of its flagship programme, “Kawader” 2015, which is on its third run.
QFCA chief executive officer Yousuf al-Jaidah congratulated the participants on their completion of the internationally-recognised certifications, and encouraged them to start their internships that will support their career path.
“Kawader programme aims at growing Qatar’s human capital to match the development seen in the country’s rapidly-progressing financial sector by providing them with the right tools and trainings,” al-Jaida added.
Charles Carlson, CEO of Standard Chartered, said: “We encourage you to take advantage of the internship opportunities that the programme provides. This is a learning chance to widen your knowledge and skills, and to learn from industry best practices inside and outside Doha.”
The “Kawader” programme is an innovative learning initiative by QFCA and QFBA, which believe in investing in the future of the potential business leaders and decision-makers of Qatar’s emerging industry of financial services sector.
The programme endeavours to equip participants with internationally-recognised professional certifications, along with enhanced personal development skills, which will drive their growth in the industry.
This year, QFBA has enrolled 33 young Qataris, who are either in their fourth year of university or are fresh graduates.
QFBA chief executive officer Dr Abdulaziz al-Horr added: “These certifications extend a slew of full-force launch successes for our bespoke programmes and collaborative efforts with key industry leaders.
“Kawader, KAFA’A, our champion Training and Competency framework, and our pioneering partnership with the Global Management Challenge (GMC) slated for this month all share unrelenting focus on industry professionals’ starting career point: bridging the wide gap between financial educational and knowledge and the job market’s evolution and needs. We hold a firm belief that this gap is tackled at the very entry level stage.”
The aim of Kawader is to resource the future of the financial services sector with young talented Qatari professionals having the right set of skills and qualifications.
