Doha: The technical group of the Ministerial Group for the Encouragement and Participation of the Private Sector in the Economic Development Projects of Qatar, chaired by His Excellency Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, has announced the launch of a number of educational projects. It includes the allocation of public buildings to operate a number of private schools.
Considering the investment of the private sector in education, the technical committee will launch the online survey Initiative of Leasing Government Evacuated Schools Buildings to the Private Sector on the official websites of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education www.edu.gov.qa and Qatar Chamber of Commerce and Industry www.qatarchamber.com for a detailed data analysis of the private sector responses to evaluate their readiness in the implementation of the educational projects. Besides, the survey is designed to consider the opinions of the private stakeholders on the public buildings that were allocated for operation by the private schools. The objective is to review ways of ensuring optimal operation of these schools to support and develop the private sector and enhance collaboration for the development of the education system.
The survey represents an opportunity to have first-hand contact with the experience of the private sector in the development and operation of the educational projects. By analyzing the academic opportunities offered by the private sector to the community (promoting the quality of education, improving its output as well as the integration of technology in teaching and learning), the survey examines the contribution of the private sector in providing the foundation of the projects that serve Qatar’s National Vision 2030 and the other state trends of development.
For this end, the school team formed by the technical group of the Ministerial Group for the implementation follow-up of the policy plans set by the state will analyze the results of the survey for drafting the educational policies and shall submit the proposals and the related mechanisms to the technical committee of the Ministerial Group.
The Ministerial Group for the Encouragement and Participation of the Private Sector in the Economic Development Projects of Qatar, chaired by His Excellency Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser Al Thani, the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, is developing strategies to support investors in all sectors to allow for a greater role of the private sector in the economic development projects across the country. The Ministerial Group plans to launch projects in different sectors, including food security, health, industry, tourism and logistics areas in full implementation of the directives of His Highness the Amir, as the government seeks to reach a stage self-reliance and self-sufficiency and enhancing Qatar’s developmental and sustainable macro project with the objective of creating more economic opportunities and options for investors, especially at the levels of public and university education.
