The Supreme Education Council (SEC) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Qatar Leadership Centre (QLC) to develop and strengthen capacity building of the SEC’s leadership.

The MoU was signed by HE Dr. Mohammed bin Abdul Wahed Al-Hammadi, Minister of Education and Higher Education and Secretary General of the Supreme Education Council (SEC), and HE Sheikh Abdulla bin Ali Al-Thani, Ph.D., Managing Director and Member of the Board of Directors of QLC. Under the memo, QLC will organize a specialized leadership training program to upgrade the skills of the Council’s officials, in order to achieve the SEC’s objectives in line with Qatar National Vision 2030.

“This MoU represents the SEC’s largest training plan since its launch, as the Council seeks to ensure that its employees receive the best training courses to promote their skills and improve their performance and career progression,” said HE Dr. Al Hammadi.  “This MoU is a practical result of the SEC’s calls to invest in education and training, as investing directly in human capital is one of the priorities of the SEC.”
