Director of Qatar Career Development Center (QCDC) Abdullah Al Mansoori has praised the Shura Council for the discussion on the Qatari job seekers'' issue, identifying the country’s needs in terms of specialisations required in the labour market and developing human resources in general.
Mansoori said, "We thank Speaker of the Shura Council HE Hassan bin Abdullah Al Ghanim and the members of the council for shedding light on this matter that QCDC is working on as part of its efforts to support the State''s endeavour to promote comprehensive national development and achieve the Qatar National Vision 2030 (QNV 2030).
“In the framework of these efforts, we are holding the third edition of the Career Guidance Stakeholders Platform on January 18, 2022, under the titled ‘Accelerating Human Capital Development through Career Guidance under the QNV 2030’, in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, the International Labor Organization (ILO) Project Office for the State of Qatar and Qatar Foundation (QF)’s Higher Education Division."
He added, "In this year’s Platform, we look forward to building on the success of the previous edition with the aim of continuing our sincere endeavours toward addressing practical and strategic issues and devising career guidance policies and strategies in Qatar. This will certainly support young people in achieving their aspirations, both professionally and personally, as well as enhance their active participation in the nation’s growth and progress.”
According to him, the event will also focus on enhancing the transition of people with disabilities from secondary education to the real working life via a structured career management skills framework. It will also examine the processes for streamlining and strengthening the provision of K-12 career guidance in schools.
The platform will also explore the ways to boost the employability of higher education graduates, who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mansoori added that the platform will work towards “collecting data to address current skills gaps or obsolete skills, as well as emergent future demands to effectively support adult workforce transitioning and upskilling.”
