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.

During the first academic year, Qatar’s Technical High School for Girls aims to attract 90 girls who have completed grade 9 successfully. Students who meet the admissions requirements will be eligible to attend grade 10 in the next academic year.

Online registration for admissions will be open from August 16 to September 3, 2020. Applicants should submit all the required documents at the beginning of the academic year.

The school's educational plan consists of an academic and technical subject to prepare students for post-secondary education and a successful career path. The academic subjects will include Islamic studies, Arabic, Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Science, Social Science and Physical Education. The technical subjects will be taught based on the students' discipline of choice.

The technical majors to be offered for grade 10 students are laboratory technicians, electronics and communications, and information technology.

After successful completion of the program, students will graduate with secondary school examination certificates in addition to the Australian International TAFE Certificate for those specialized in Medical Laboratories, and Electronics and Communications. IT students will graduate with a secondary school examination certificate and Microsoft Network Engineering Certificate.

These certificates will qualify the school’s graduates to apply for technical or non-technical university programs in Qatar or abroad, or directly join the labor market.
