Aiming High at Ta’allum Careers Fair

Al Maha Academy for Boys hosted the 2019 Ta’allum Careers Fair, drawing together over 200 upper school students to meet with representatives from local and international business and educational organisations. Ta’allum students from the Boys’ Academy, Al Maha Academy for Girls and Al Jazeera academy received comprehensive information on education and job opportunities, helping them to plan more effectively for their future. The event took the form of a ‘drop in’ session in the Academy auditorium.

The event was organised by Year Leader and Careers Coordinator, Nisar Ahmed who said  “Al Maha Boys’ Academy was proud to be the host of the annual Ta’allum Careers Fair, as it aims to give our young people the opportunity to explore career options and network with potential employees.’

A significant range of local and national employer organisations were represented at the event embracing a wide range of work sectors and educational institutions. These included Commercial Bank, Qatar Airways, Hamad Medical- Pharmacy and Nursing, Sidra Medical, Qatar University, Stenden University, University of Aberdeen, Score Plus, Education Basket, NCUK, Academic Bridge Program, University of Calgary ………as well as companies representing the Care Sector. They will be bringing along ‘live’ job opportunities to promote and talk through with the young people that attend.

Aisha Al Kuwari, Year 11 student at Al Jazeera Academy, said: “I came to the fair as I wanted to know more about the sort of opportunities available. I am interested in a career in Law. When you talk to the representatives, you get a better idea of what specialisations and soft-skills are needed.’

AMAB Principal, Shuja Uddin said ‘the event was very well organised and much appreciated by students. Their feedback has been exceptionally positive. We hope it will be a recurring event in the schools’ calendar.’

Ta’allum Director of Education, Dr Mohammed Saefan said. Ta’allum Academies have a talented pool of young people who have high aspirations. They are the leaders of the next generation in Qatar. We aim to provide the best advice and guidance to them to prepare for the demands of working life in the future of a rapidly changing world. This event establishes clear links with prominent Qatar business and educational organisations both at home and further afield which will provide a widening and informed range of choices for our students in their future career pathways.’
