A digital platform designed with high technical capabilities will soon provide online training programs for employees across the region.
As part of Qatar’s 2030 National Vision, Qatar Chambers together with one of the country’s leading professional training academies is launching a new portal to help develop the skills of employees in both the public and private sectors.
The project which is being lead together with Pioneers Academy is aimed at strengthening the economy and business sectors by equipping workers with greater skills. With education and training moving more and more online, and in light of the restrictions that have been put in place as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic the hope is that this portal will ensure training is accessible to all those who want to receive professional training but would otherwise find it difficult.
Since the virus’s emergence early this year, many businesses have been forced to shut down their facilities or adapt their business models and reduce their operations. The vast majority of businesses have shifted to working remotely as the optimal way to continue running.
In light of this, Qatar Chambers’ general manager Saleh bin Hamad al-Sharqi has stated that the online training platform is sure to further “develop skills of employees of the government and private sector.”
All the training programs being offered via the online portal will be open to citizens and expatriates alike. Various different types of courses specialised in different fields will be made available, such as administration, finance and technology.
These online training courses will be presented on the platform in two ways: live streaming and pre-recorded sessions. Trainees who subscribe to the platform will receive an international certificate once they complete their courses. Special training packages will be tailored for the needs of each sector, as well as individual packages which will be designed for third parties.
