For July 2019

Since its inception, Qatar Foundation has been committed to providing world-class school curricula in order to realise the vision of His Highness the Father Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, stipulating that the future of the State of Qatar is based on the development of its most important resource, namely Qatari minds.

Qatar Foundation started its journey in 1995; and its earliest achievement was Qatar Academy-Doha. The Division of Pre- University Education (PUE) later expanded to include twelve academies and other educational programs, namely Qatar Academy-Al Wakra, Qatar Academy-Msheireb, Qatar Academy-Al Khor, Qatar Academy-Sidra, Qatar Leadership Academy, Awsaj Academy, Renad Academy, the Academic Bridge Program and the Qatar Armed Services Academic Bridge Program, The Learning Center (TLC) and the Education Development Institute (EDI). These leading educational centers, operating under the umbrella of Pre-university Education in Qatar Foundation, strive to fulfil Qatar Foundation’s message of unlocking human potential, by offering the best academic curricula in order to contribute to the dissemination of the culture of excellence and innovation.

The Foundation focuses on education, science and research, and community development, and they need the best people to help them achieve their ambitious goals.  If you smile when you think about children; when you’re talking to parents; when you’re discussing new ideas in education; when you’re removing barriers to learning, you may be the person they are looking for.
