Oman’s Minister of Education, Dr Madiha bint Ahmed al-Shaibaniyah, has described Qatar’s educational system as “a pioneer and rich experience” and stressed that Qatar’s expertise in this field is in line with international standards.
Speaking to Qatar News Agency (QNA), the Omani minister, who is visiting Doha, hailed Qatar’s efforts in the education sector and support for it at the global level, while praising the initiatives of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, and Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser.
She also appreciated the distinguished role played by the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, higher education institutions and research sectors in the social, cultural and research fields and in the so-called ‘STEM’ system in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, which indicates Qatar’s vision for the future and that its educational system is keeping pace with the latest international developments in the field.
Dr al-Shaibaniyah explained that her visit to Qatar comes as an activation of the executive programme of the terms of the educational and cultural co-operation agreement between Qatar and Oman, pointing out that during the past five years many aspects of this programme have been activated in terms of exchange of visits of delegations in various areas, and their training programmes, and the benefit of education and co-operation in the field of evaluation and curriculum development.
She said an Omani delegation to Qatar had learned about the Qatari experience in the series of science and mathematics, adding that a Qatari delegation which visited Oman, was briefed on e-correction and evaluation experience under the programme.
The two countries, she said, will further activate aspects of educational co-operation and the exchange of experiences between them, stressing full harmony between those in charge in both countries in these areas.
“Co-operation between us is ongoing and we will activate it more during the next phase”, she added.
