With applications to join the second cohort now open, the first week of Teach For Qatar's recruitment roadshow saw more than 300 university students register their interest to apply for the 2015 - 2017 Fellowship.
As Teach For Qatar advances its search for graduates and young professionals across Doha, university students will continue to be invited to attend information sessions hosted on their respective campuses. Teach For Qatar's Head of Outreach and External Relations, Habes Howail, said: "We have so far seen positive interest from students at Qatar University, Texas A&M University and Georgetown, who were eager to learn more about Teach For Qatar’s mission and how to join. As students continue to spread the word about us on social media, it is also very encouraging to witness an increased interest from males exploring the option of joining our Fellowship this year." With applications for the 2015-2017 Fellowship closing at the start of April, Teach For Qatar will continue to promote its two-year teaching and leadership development programme through the ongoing university roadshow.
Founded by HE Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al-Thani, Teach For Qatar is a local non-governmental organisation (NGO) working to help solve the challenges Qatar's students face, by reinvesting exceptionally talented leaders into the independent school system. Teach For Qatar is actively seeking to address the value of teaching and its important role in realising the Human Development Pillar of the Qatar National Vision 2030. It does this by providing its Fellows with the opportunity to guide and inspire the country’s future leaders inside the classroom.
