Qatar Education & Research

Human development is one of the four pillars of the country’s economic blueprint, Qatar National Vision 2030, with the 2011-16 National Development Strategy highlighting the importance of education in driving the state’s push toward a knowledge-based economy. Efforts to raise the standards of education in Qatar have been gathering pace and over the past decade the country has introduced a decentralised public school system, supported the development of a vibrant private school segment and invested significantly in tertiary education initiatives. Moving forward, a combination of government commitment, key partnerships with non-state stakeholders and increasing demand for education are set to maintain the sector’s pace of development.
