The International Experts’ Meeting on TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) for Sustainable and Inclusive Development was  recently hosted by the College of the North Atlantic-Qatar (CNA-Q), in partnership with Unesco.

A total of 70 government, academic, and industry experts from 12 countries came together in the event, which also included Dr Hamda al-Sulaiti, secretary-general of the Qatar National Commission for Education, Culture and Science (QNCECS); Dr Muna Salim al-Jardinaniyah, undersecretary from Oman’s Ministry of Manpower for Technological Education and Vocational Training; and Dr Azzah Ahmed al-Maskari, dean of Ibra College of Technology in Oman.


The meeting was organised by Dr Rupert Maclean, who co-currently holds the Unesco chair on TVET for Sustainable Development and the Qapco professional chair in Vocational Studies, at CNA-Q, as reported by Gulf Times.

The Meeting was aimed at establishing a research agenda for TVET in Qatar that responds to the rapidly changing demands of 21st century work, and recognises the importance of supporting sustainable and inclusive development. 

One of the striking features of the meeting was the drafting of the ‘Doha Declaration on Strengthening and Upgrading Research in TVET for Sustainable and Inclusive Development.’
