Qatar Career Development Centre (QCDC), a member of Qatar Foundation (QF), has opened registration for the first edition of its ‘Career Academy’ programme, which aims to take high school students on an educational journey that explores career opportunities – within the private and public sectors – and jobs that are in high demand.
‘Career Academy’, delivered in Arabic, will take place over the course of two weeks, from June 30-July 11, 8am-1pm at Multaqa. Students can register for the two-week programme, or may choose to register for one week only. All students who successfully complete the programme will be awarded participation certificates.
Abdulla al-Mansoori, director, QCDC, said, “QCDC endeavours to offer various programmes and activities that provide our youth with the opportunity to gain insight into career paths that serve the needs of the country and enable professionals to contribute to Qatar’s development.
“The programme features a variety of activities – including field trips, workshops, and recreational and educational activities – to help students prepare both mentally and practically to embark on the career path that best suits them.”
The programme will include field trips to both private and public institutions in Qatar, including Hamad Medical Corporation, Qatar Airways, and Es’hailSat.
These field trips will offer participants the opportunity to connect with professionals and learn to which extent these jobs match their skills and potential, and what to expect from each profession. Students will also be given the opportunity learn about Qatar-based universities, such as Qatar University, Hamad Bin Khalifa University, and QF partner universities.
Representatives of these institutes will provide students with overviews of the academic programmes and admission requirements, helping participants to make informed academic choices.
The programme will also include a number of character-building workshops designed to help prepare students for university, featuring topics such as ‘Preparations to study abroad’, ‘How to write a resume’, and ‘How to introduce yourself to society’, as well as sessions to empower participants to become independent.
A variety of recreational and educational activities will also be on offer. Participants will attend a series of practical workshops that aim to equip students with a wide range of personal and life skills, as well as to improve their self-confidence, communication, public speaking, and teamwork abilities.
