Qatar Career Fair (QCF), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, has opened registration for its Career Adviser Training Course.
Launched in 2015, it is the first specialised programme of its kind offered for career advisers in Qatar and the Gulf region, and this year’s edition will take place from May 22 to 26.
Certified by Kuder, a world leader in career planning services, the QCF course aims to equip participants with essential career guidance and planning skills, as well as the necessary tools to assist youth along their career journeys.
Offered in both Arabic and English, the course is open to the public and will be useful for career advisers, academic and vocational counsellors, human resources personnel, professors, instructors, scholars and parents.
Abdullah Ahmed al-Mansoori, director of QCF, said: “We have attached a great deal of importance to this course because it will allow individuals to further their professional development. And it will offer in-depth knowledge of technology-based applications that can be used to enhance careers.”
Throughout the duration of the course and six months thereafter, participants will have access to an online portal which will serve as a knowledge bank.
Dr Spencer Niles, who currently directs Kuder’s research programme and co-ordinates Kuder’s research review board, will present the course along with Dr Mohammad Abul-Ola.
A distinguished professor and department head for Educational Psychology, Counselling, and Special Education, Dr Niles currently serves as the director of the Centre for the Study of Career Development and Public Policy at Pennsylvania State University.
Those who register to take the Career Adviser Training Course will automatically be accepted into the Introductory Career Advisery Course, which will be hosted by QCF on April 28 at the Education City Clubhouse.
