Tribune News Network
College of the North Atlantic - Qatar (CNA-Q) is opening its doors on Monday, March 25, for the public to experience the applied education that makes it Qatar’s premier national technical college.
During this 10th Annual CNA-Q Skills Day, there will be an open house and Skill Stations for participants and community members to browse through and participate in. College students will be participating in over 30 Skills Competitions which will test their capabilities in Business Studies, Engineering Technology, Health Sciences, Information Technology, Academic Studies and the Skilled Trades.
During the “’Test Drive Our Campus’ open day, the public is invited to come along to see the stimulating competitions and try their hand at an array of activities themselves.
“We are inviting future students, parents, industry representatives and community members to attend an open house to showcase our state-of-the-art campus where students are immersed in experiential learning,” said Samah Gamar, vice-president, academic.
Over 200 CNA-Q students are registered to participate in competitions with their peers. These competitions are designed to allow students to demonstrate the skills they have learnt in their studies through practical scenarios they will encounter in the workforce. As in the past years, high school students will join the competitions as a way to expose youth to the diverse vocational and technical learning options at the College. Additionally, post-secondary students from other institutions in Qatar are joining the Health Sciences competitions.
The CNA-Q Annual Skills Competition is modeled from WorldSkills, which is a global competition with a mandate to raise the profile and recognition of skilled trades and professions.
Registration for a guided tour of the college will be available on Monday at the lobby in Building 1.
