Qatargas organized its annual Qatarization Forum for its National Graduates. Two separate sessions were held for those based in Ras Laffan and Doha. The coaches assigned to guide and mentor the National Graduates during their individual development phase also participated in the Forum. This year’s Forum was held under the theme ‘Coaching National Graduates’.
The forum provided the opportunity for Nationals and coaches to share their experiences and challenges in Qatargas. Coaches and National Graduates who have moved in to established positions shared their experiences and success stories; and encouraged the new National Graduates to take advantage of the learning opportunities provided to them by Qatargas and to take ownership of their development. The Forum also focused on enhancing communication and feedback between the coaches and the National Graduates to have a better understanding of each other’s roles and responsibilities.

As a part of the Forum, the group activity this year was facilitated by young Nationals from the Learning & Development Focus Group. They chose the 'Start, Stop, Continue' model to facilitate communication between the Nationals and Coaches. The Focus group plays an active role in discussing issues and concerns with National Graduates and in communicating these regularly to the Qatarization and National Development Division. At the Forum, the Learning & Development Focus Group members who completed their term (2012-2014) were recognized for their outstanding efforts and contribution to the National Graduate community.
This Forum is one of several platforms, which provides an opportunity for Qatari National Graduates to engage in open discussions with the Head of Qatarization and National Development, to ask questions or raise concerns and suggestions related to their training and development programmes. The annual Qatarization Forum reflects the commitment made by Qatarization and National Development Division and the Learning & Development Department to the continuous development of its National workforce, striving towards premier performance.
