Doha: Under the patronage and attendance of Chairperson and founder of Teach For Qatar, H E Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, the organisation recently celebrated the graduation of its 7th cohort of Fellows, who have successfully completed their Leadership Journey after two years of teaching in government schools in Qatar.
In attendance were Nasser Yousef Al Jaber, Chief Executive Officer of Teach For Qatar, the organisation's board members, and strategic partners, along with the graduating Fellows and guests.
H E Sheikha Hind said,“The Fellows are an integral part of the organisation's success and development. Their tremendous enthusiasm and limitless contributions have helped the development of the educational system through their leadership and teaching skills which have inspired our students.”
She added:“Although their two-year Leadership Journey has ended, it is only the beginning of their life long journey in enacting positive change and having an impact, as they are leaders who are able to face all challenges and make positive change in this country. I look forward to seeing their achievements and their impact after their Fellowship.”
Minister of Education and Higher Education, H E Buthaina bint Ali Al Nuaimi, said,“I applaud the Fellows for the hard work they put forth through their two-year Leadership Journey and I congratulate them for their success. Their decision to join the education sector will allow them to have a lasting impact and to give back to our precious nation.” The Minister attested to the important role Teach For Qatar has played in the education sector by recruiting the nations most promising individuals into the education sector and equipping them to help develop the next generation to achieve.
Nasser Yousef Al Jaber said,“We are confident that you will continue your enthusiasm and commitment not only to spread the culture of excellence in education but also to continue to make the impact we aim to achieve on the long run in Qatar. Continue this path you have started and remember why you joined the program.”
He also urged them to continue to advocate on behalf of their students, whether they decide to continue in education, as 65% of their peers have chosen, or return to their previous industries.
Al Jaber also thanked the organisation's supporting partners which are the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, Qatar Energy and ExxonMobil in Qatar for their faith in the organisation's mission and vision and Qatar University for their ongoing support.
Former Minister of Energy and Industry, H E Dr. Mohamed Saleh Al Sada said,“I was honoured to attend the ceremony honouring the seventh cohort of Fellows, and I always look forward to participating in supporting Teach For Qatar because I believe in the effective role played by the organization's team. What distinguishes Teach For Qatar is their highly selective process , as they recruit high potential individuals capable of contributing to the development of the educational system through creativity and innovation in education and in transferring knowledge to the student.”
He added,“I hope to see more success for the organization and its graduates. I am absolutely certain that what the organization's graduates will provide in the future will be of quality and impact.”
During the ceremony, a short film was shown about the Fellowship Journey. The film showcased the Fellows' unique experience in the two-years, which was full of challenges and remarkable achievements with their students.
The graduating Fellows had undergone Teach For Qatar's training programme that focused on developing leadership qualities in oneself first, and then moving to leading others, which gives the Fellow a deep self-awareness that enables them not only to take responsibility for their growth as leaders, but also the ability to lead others efficiently and effectively through the practice of critical thinking and self-awareness, which will thus allow them to develop their understanding of their personal role in bringing about change in their community.
