Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Center), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Higher Education at Qatar National Library, recently held a two-day seminar titled, “Be A Leader.” The event focused on leaders of student cabinets in all schools to highlight their leadership skills, develop them and create a decent rivalry among the peers.

Held for the fourth consecutive year, the event was aimed at preparing members of the student council of local independent secondary schools (boys and girls) to lead the future of the State of Qatar. They were coached to be active in the renaissance of their home country due to the important role of student cabinets and councils in high school life.

Several workshops were organised for all participants. The first workshop for boys titled “how to create leadership initiatives” was addressed by instructor Naser Al Mughaseeb, while the second one about declamation skills was presented by Instructor Ahmad Al Malki. Likewise, for the girls, Al Suwaidi conducted the workshop on “how to create leadership initiatives” as well as another workshop on declamation skills that was headed by Shaikha Burshaid. The event ended with a competition titled, “leadership under the siege” to gauge the best leadership initiative.

On this occasion, Reem Al-Suwaidi, General Manager of Bedaya Center said, “We are holding this initiative for the fourth consecutive time along with our partner, the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, through which we are keen to train members of Student Council on the principles of leadership and professional guidance. This initiative will enable them to be ambassadors in their schools and raise awareness on how to make decisions among their colleagues. “Members of Student Councils are part of the main pillars in the process of developing education in public schools, and they are the voice of students at school administration and therefore they also have a great task of introducing other students to all issues related to the education sector that are of interest to both the schools and students,” added Al-Suwaidi.
