The Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE) will open the first technical high school for girls in Qatar from September, and children born in Qatar can also apply.
The school is all set to play a major role in enhancing the technical and vocational education in Qatar and expand the contribution of Qatari women in the country's development.
The school is established to provide the local labor market with the necessary pool of academically and technically qualified female cadres, promote women's technical training, create equal job opportunities for males and females, and increase the number of Qatari women employed in technical fields.
