Doha: The Secretary-General of Qatar National Commission for Education, Culture and Science (QNCECS), Dr Hamda Al Sulaiti, discussed yesterday the cooperation agreement regarding junior professionals that was signed four years ago with United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco).
In an introductory meeting on the agreement, she said that the programme offers well-qualified Qatari youth good opportunities for on-the-job training and the necessary expertise to work in any international organisation.
She pointed to the continued distinguished relations between Qatar and Unesco since the country became a member in 1972 in order to benefit from its potential as a civilised framework in which people are united to contribute to building human beings and to foster the spirit of solidarity and integration among human beings.
The positive cooperation between the two sides has had a positive impact. A wide range of Unesco programmes and activities have been implemented, as well as several agreements signed with relevant ministries and institutions in the country. She added that the objectives of the Junior Professionals Programme focus on preparing and qualifying young Qatari cadres gain experience and work in any international organisation.
She highlighted that the human factor is the primary driver of development and a pillar of the sustainable development goals set in Qatar National Vision 2030. She added that those young cadres will be the ones to lead development projects in the future.
