Education and Training Trade Mission to Qatar - October 2017
This Education & Training Sector Mission will visit Doha from 22nd to 25th October 2017. The in-market programme will be arranged and set up by the British Chamber of Commerce Qatar on behalf of DIT Doha, Pathfinder Trade & Invest and TVET UK. The Mission Leader has firsthand experience of doing business in the education sector worldwide and will give delegates full in-market support.
This Mission’s innovative approach moves away from the usual set of joint group meetings throughout, and offers a bespoke and valuable programme to delegates. Day One of the programme will feature a market briefing and a programme of sector specific group meetings. A networking reception will also take place should sponsorship be secured. A list of 10 contacts of direct interest/relevant, including email addresses and telephone numbers will be provided to you prior to departure for you to self manage your own bespoke individual programme of meetings from Day Two onwards, thus ensuring you meet your own personal needs/objectives and achieve the maximum benefit possible from your participation. All within the wider education sector are invited to join this Mission, members of TVET UK will receive an additional discount.
Education & Training providers/suppliers in the broadest form, i.e. Universities, Colleges, Schools, Technical & Vocational Training, Special Educational Needs, educational technology, software and resources, training materials, qualifications, assessment and quality assurance, furniture, equipment etc.
Mission participants must be British exporters of goods or services. They may be a UK registered subsidiary of a foreign company, provided they are actively contributing to the British economy. They may also be based overseas working for a UK company.
Human development is one of the four pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030 plan, which highlights the importance of education in driving the state’s push toward a knowledge-based economy. Moving forward, a combination of government commitment, key partnerships with non-state stakeholders and increasing demand for education are set to maintain this sector’s pace of development. The Qataris are keen to see a larger presence from the UK, both in the form of British universities setting up in Qatar, but also teaching and research staff; there are also opportunities for vocational training, British training materials, software etc.
