The Community College of Qatar (CCQ) hosted the representatives of 15 prominent organisations at its recently held 2019-2020 Students’ Sponsors meeting.
These organisations are the Amiri Diwan, Qatar Armed Forces, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Transport and Communications, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Hamad Medical Corporation, Primary Health Care Corporation, the General Authority of Customs, General Tax Authority, Qatar Petrochemical Company, Qatar Fertilizer Company, Qatar Petroleum, Dolphin Energy Limited, Commercial Bank and Aspire Zone.
CCQ’s annual event serves as a platform to work closely with State institutions, sponsorship partners and major stakeholders in the labour market to further align its career-oriented academic offerings with Qatar’s strategic objectives, explore new programme development opportunities and ensure a fruitful educational and professional journey for its sponsored students, according to a press statement.
CCQ president Dr Mohamed al-Naemi underscored the importance of the annual meeting in discovering more ways to enrich the on-campus experience of partner institutions’ sponsored students and enhance their skill-sets to become indispensable assets at their workplace, as well as adding value to their organisations upon graduating.
“One of the things that sets CCQ apart from other higher education institutions in Qatar is our proximity to the labour market, whether through a flexible 2+2 certification framework, skill-based practical training and internships, or a flexible, all-day schedule. However, this unique approach to college education can only have its desired impact when we develop our programmes and deliver our processes in absolute harmony with the State’s objectives,” he said.
“Considering that the Qatar National Vision 2030 is adopted — and, in many cases, set in motion — by national institutions and eminent private organisations in critical sectors, many of which are CCQ’s sponsorship partners, our annual Students’ Sponsors meeting is an excellent opportunity to push forward this agenda and breathe new life into the labour market, while bolstering the role CCQ plays in the national education landscape,” he added.
During the meeting, CCQ’s sponsorship partners were given detailed presentations on the diverse range of academic programmes and specialisations available at the College, and how they have been designed to meet the evolving needs of the national labour market.
The college’s Student Affairs Division also presented the sponsoring institutions’ representatives with an overview of CCQ’s admission requirements, registration procedures, and the services offered to their sponsored students.
As part of the event, the CCQ vice-president Dr Khalid al-Abdulqader and the deans of various academic divisions held an open discussion with the sponsorship partners, where they talked through the needs of sponsored students, reviewed the institutions’ objectives and identified ways to jointly develop and improve processes in the interests of all parties concerned.
