The Bedaya Center for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Center), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank and Silatech, is gearing up to lunch its winter camp “Winterna”, which will take place from 21 January until 1 February 2018 at the cultural village – Katara.

The Winterna camp aims to provide high school and university students the necessary skills required for creative thinking, project development, team work, effective communication methods as well as teach them leadership skills. The camp will impart these skills through workshops, activities and field visits to some institutions and businesses.

The Winterna camp will provide participants with the opportunity to experience and experiment a working environment or what is known as job shadowing in many disciplines and sectors. This activity has been designed to give the participants a chance to learn more about the nature of the work of the employees by accompanying them throughout the working day and to acquire expertise that would enable them to become successful employees in the future as well.

On this occasion, Reem Al-Suwaidi, General Manager of Bedaya Center said, “We received an overwhelming response for the first edition of the Winter Camp held last year. In the last winterna camp we successfully organized several planned activities like the development and educational workshops to highlight theoretical concepts and apply work skills in a real environment.”

On top of that, the camp helped students have a clear understanding about the values, rules and standards adopted by entrepreneurs and companies with firsthand experience of working environment which was a real and tangible opportunity for all participants to get acquainted with different fields and businesses. By launching this edition of the winter camp, we seek to provide this experience to the largest number of students who missed the opportunity to participate in the camp last year.
