Under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation, the Qatar Nanny Training Academy (QNTA) honored its inaugural class of 14 students during a graduation ceremony held at the Qatar National Convention Centre.
QNTA trains young, Muslim, Arab nannies in obtaining a professional qualification in childcare.
In line with Qatar Foundation’s aim of fostering a progressive society and enhancing Qatar’s cultural life and heritage, QNTA is enriching the lives of Muslim Arab families by supporting Arabic-speaking nannies to impart Islamic values. The Academy also provides training and education in the field of early childcare to nannies already working with families in Qatar.
The graduation ceremony was attended by Engineer Saad Al Muhannadi, the President of Qatar Foundation, as well several ambassadors from Arab countries, in addition to a select group of VIPs and academic staff.
Initiated by Qatar Foundation, the Academy is the first-of-its-kind in the region to educate younger generations while preserving the Arabic language, and Qatar’s cultures and traditions.
Students participating in the 10-month program hail from Arab countries, while this year’s graduates originate from The Comoros and Mauritania. The training includes specialized courses in all aspects of childcare, including first aid, nutrition, hygiene, education, Arabic, Islamic and cultural studies.
