This competition is open to the college’s faculty and staff to encourage them to work in new ways, collaborate and test innovative ideas that serve CNA-Q’s community and the educational process.

College of the North Atlantic in Qatar (CNA-Q), the institution of excellence in technical and vocational education and training, has launched 'Ideas to Improve Education' competition on the occasion of International Day of Education.
This competition is open to the college’s faculty and staff to encourage them to work in new ways, collaborate and test innovative ideas that serve CNA-Q’s community and the educational process. The competition falls within this year’s theme declared by the Unesco: 'Changing Course, Transforming Education'.
Participants will be able to share their ideas through a web portal following a set of terms and guiding rules. All new ideas should be presented along a structured plan and timeline including smart objectives.
Dr Salem Al-Naemi, CNA-Q’s President, said: “The college aims to foster a community of leaders and innovators. This competition gives our faculty and staff the chance to express their ideas, find challenges, work on solutions and create simple roadmaps that benefit CNA-Q and are in line with the College’s vision and mission. Education is a continuous process of improvement to meet the needs of an ever-evolving economy and a demanding society. For this purpose, and on the occasion of International Day of Education, we decided to deploy all efforts to ensure our students reach their full potential throughout their education.”
The ideas generated by the candidates will be evaluated by the Vice President - Academic Affairs’ Office Committee and the winner will have the college’s full support in bringing the idea to life. The Applied Research and Innovation department at CNA-Q embodies a Unesco-Unevoc centre, dedicated to advancing technical and vocational education and training in Qatar. The college has launched in the beginning of this academic year more than 20 new Applied Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree programmes that are available for current, new and international students. This step answers the need of the local and international markets and will equip Qatari and expatriate talents with the necessary skills to serve the economy. The new programs include emerging specialisations and interdisciplinary curricula.
The innovative majors come as part of the transformation that the college is currently undergoing, 20 years after its inception. The college focuses on experiential and applied learning in technology-rich classrooms, workshops, laboratories, and simulated environments.
