College of the North Atlantic-Qatar
(CNAQ)

UNEVOC Centre (Training provider) since 2007

The College of the North Atlantic-Qatar (CNA-Q) is the third largest post-secondary educational institution in Qatar. CNA-Q strives to meet the ever-changing needs of the State of Qatar through strategic partnerships with government, industry, other institutions of higher education. CNA-Q offers an education that can be customized to industry and to students.

CNA-Q is Qatar’s leading TVET institution and the country’s official UNEVOC centre. Programs taught at CNA-Q have been identified by the State of Qatar as vital to building the country’s knowledge economy. CNA-Q has and continuous to be a key partner to the Ministry of Education and Higher Education as well industry in the achievement of the Human Development pillar of Qatar's National Vision 2030.

CNA-Q works closely with the government of Qatar and industry to ensure that our students learn skills that are in demand in the workplace. Our graduates make an impact in the workplace from day one because a TVET education is an applied education. In addition to the traditional classroom and work placements, our students learn on real world equipment and tools typically found in the workplace of their chosen career.

CNA-Q graduates are job-ready with high level of technical and 21st century skills. Through leadership and innovation in education, applied research, community service and engagement, CNA-Q prepares professionals for a growing and diverse society, offering customized technical and vocational programs to the State of Qatar and beyond. Using the latest technologies, learning facilities, laboratories and simulators, it is also specialized in customized training and education to serve many sectors including oil and gas, petrochemicals, and others.

By integrating the emergent practices and technologies of business, engineering and health sciences in a rich blend of seasoned industry and academic instruction, the College is a leader in experiential learning, creating a large, diverse and well-connected alumni throughout the Middle East, Africa and the World.

Furthermore, CNA-Q engages TVET students in applied research projects and through CPD:

• whether customized or off-the-shelf, face-to-face or blended learning, one-day or several weeks or months, CPD works in partnership with College Schools and every client.

• develops and delivers courses and programs tailored to our partners’ unique technical and professional workforce development and performance management needs.

Mission

CNA-Q aspires to be a premier technical college that will provide the best education for the State of Qatar by offering all learners the opportunity to reach their full potential.

The words “premier technical college,” though brief, are loaded with meaning and vision. The word “premier” infers being first, being the best. As the State of Qatar transitions from a resource-based economy to a digital, knowledge- based, global economy, the best can only be defined as an institution that has 21st century facilities, faculty, programs, and educational practices, and an institution that graduates learners with 21st century technical skills and learning behaviours.

The word “technical” delineates the unique educational niche that CNA-Q fills for the State of Qatar and underscores the reality that a technical education and general technical literacy are essential to realizing the opportunities afforded by a new age economy and the attainment of prosperity for all citizens of Qatar.

Finally, the word “college” infers workplace-relevant, learner-centered, applied learning programs delivered in a supportive learning environment where learner success is an institutional imperative, and innovation and creativity are core values.

CNA-Q will strive to achieve the vision that these three words encompass by maximizing our expertise in,

and passion for, innovation and applied learning, and comprehensively using technology to support innovative teaching and learning, creating robust educational and operational support systems, and developing 21st century skill proficiency for our learners. That is, CNA-Q will be a leader in how we use technology to enhance how we learn, work, and grow.
