His Excellency Dr. Issa Saad Al-Jafali Al-Nuaimi, Minister of Administrative Development, opened yesterday at the Institute of Administrative Development, and in the presence of directors of HR departments and training heads in government bodies, a special meeting to discuss linking training to career paths.

The meeting was held to highlight the role of ministries and government entities, as well as the role of the Ministry of Administrative Development, in implementing the project of linking training to career tracks, and also to explain models of identify training needs.

HE the Minister said “The great achievements of the State of Qatar are the outcome of determination, dedication and hard work, and above all, the commitment of our Government under the leadership of His Highness the Emir, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, to human development, driven by a deep belief that man is the cornerstone of development.

“This commitment is clearly reflected in Qatar National Vision 2030, which considered human development as one of its four pillars, thus emphasizing   the need to develop the people of Qatar and enable them to build a prosperous society, enjoying high standards of education, health and living” as he added. The meeting was convened, according to HE the Minister, within the context of the role entrusted to the Ministry of Administrative Development.

Linking training to career path, HE explained, is a national project intended to create a relationship between training and career competencies at workplaces, in order to ensure that Qatari employees of all levels are able to perform their jobs effectively. The project, as he said, focuses on providing Qatari employees with administrative skills needed to manage, organize and control their work, as well as with specialized skills that enable them to carry out their work with perfection and quality, resulting in enhancing self-confidence and ability to assume leadership positions.

HE stressed the importance of cooperation between human resource managers and training officers in government entities, urging them to become success partners and help in achieving aspired goals and results through the implementation of this project, noting that priority should be given to attending training programs and that vacations must not conflict with preset and scheduled training programs. He also cautioned against taking official missions at the time when training programs are being held, except in cases of extreme necessity.

“We would like to assure you that there will be very soon, a registration system based on a comprehensive and accurate database, to identify, electronically and with precision, the training needs, number and frequency of programs and candidates” HE the Minister said.  

For his part, Hadi Bin Saeed Al Khyarin, Director of the Institute of Administrative Development, gave a detailed description of the general framework for linking training to career paths and the role of the Ministry of Administrative Development in implementing the project and, especially, in providing specialized training. He also briefed the meeting on the role of government entities as implementing partners to the project, especially with regard to specialized training programs.

Abdulaziz Hassan, senior HR specialist at the Ministry of Administrative Development, underscored the importance of identifying training needs as a prerequisite for linking training to career paths, and explained the general framework for identifying training needs, how to complete the model, and the mechanisms of action and communication with the Ministry for the implementation of this national project.

After a session of discussion and questions and answers about the implementation of the project and action mechanisms, HE the Minister thanked everybody who contributed to the success of the meeting, stressing the importance of attendance and adequate preparation for the implementation of this national project, which will benefit individuals as well as government entities in general.
