As part of their introduction to international teaching and Qatari culture, new members of the teaching team at Compass' four campuses, including our new state-of-the-art campus in Al Themaid, were treated to an extensive and in-depth programme at the Sheikh Abdulla Bin Zaid Mahmoud Islamic Cultural Center. New teachers also visited the Museum of Islamic Art and Sheikh Faisal Bin Qassim Al Thani Museum.
Compass International School Doha believes that an in-depth understanding of Qatar is essential for their teachers in helping their students excel in Compass' leading academic programmes.
The Director of Quality and Staff Development at the school, Simon Porter, explains: "We are one of the few truly international schools in Qatar; international teachers, international students and international curriculum from Early Years through Secondary. It is essential that our team have a fundamental understanding of the environment they are teaching in to fully do justice to our international programmes, whether it's our collaborations with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), The Julliard School or UNICEF. We are so grateful to our friends, Abdul-Aziz and Ahmed, at the Sheikh Abdulla Bin Zaid Mahmoud Islamic Cultural Center for their amazing work in educating our team."
