The Bedaya Centre for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Centre), a joint initiative of Qatar Development Bank and Silatech, is gearing up to launch its winter camp ‘Winterna’, which will be held starting this Sunday, 21 January, until 1 February 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 institutions and businesses in Qatar.

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

Reem Al-Suwaidi, General Manager of Bedaya Centre, said they received an overwhelming response for the first edition of the Winter Camp held last year, and they want to give the same experience to a larger number of students.

The camp helped students get a clear understanding of the values, rules and standards adopted by entrepreneurs and companies, within a working environment that is ‘real and tangible’. With the launch of this edition, we seek to give the same experience to larger number of students who missed the opportunity to participate in the camp last year.’
