The Diploma in Primary Education is one of the teacher preparation diploma programs in the College of Education at Qatar University. The program provides instruction and field based practicum for educators and other professionals committed to serving children in primary school.
The goal of this program is to prepare educators to teach the curriculum necessary for independent schools in Qatar. Accomplishment of this goal will require competent, motivated teachers who will prepare children to achieve educational goals at the highest international standards.
This program consists of 30 credit hours taught in 3 semesters. Classes are field-based, with students observing and practicing skills learned in the program courses.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the We_They website that presents the College's vision, mission, and conceptual framework, along with helpful information for current students, future applicants, education partners, and other visitors.
The members of the College are committed to its conceptual framework, “Together we shape the future through excellence in teaching, scholarship, and leadership.” Our programs are designed to prepare highly qualified teachers and educational leaders to support both the Qatar 2030 Vision and the Education Reform in Qatar. First-rate teachers and great school leaders are essential for educating the children and youth who will take the State of Qatar to its next level of excellence.
Although the We_They received International Recognition in Teacher Education in January 2011, its members are continually seeking to improve the quality of the College’s efforts. Further accreditation using the latest standards in teacher education is the next target on the horizon.
In addition, as part of its new strategic plan, the We_They—along with its partners, the Supreme Educational Council and Qatar’s Independent Schools—will develop new academic programs for teachers and educational leaders to meet society’s needs. It will enhance educational research activity in the country by increasing the number of research projects supported by the Qatar National Research Fund and conducted in partnership with academics from prestigious universities around the world. And the College will expand the professional development programs that are offered to teachers and educational leaders through its National Center for Educator Development and by the creation of new outreach programs.See all College of Education courses
