SEK Qatar joins the Microsoft Schools programme, an exclusive community of more than 1,000 premier schools from around the world, recognised for their pioneering efforts and innovation in rethinking teaching, learning and assessment. 

SEK Qatar joined the programme for school year 2016-2017 because they see themselves engaging with Microsoft in some capacity.

Becoming part of the Microsoft Schools programme is an amazing opportunity to connect and engage with over 1,000 leaders in education around the world, according to SEK Qatar Principal Vivian Arif.

We look forward to sharing our experiences with other schools in our community and the world, to continue finding innovative ways to equip our students with the proper tools needed for success inside and outside of the classroom.’

As well as being recognised on a global scale for their innovative approach to educating tomorrow’s workforce, Microsoft Schools receive additional collaboration opportunities with other schools around the world and access to professional development opportunities. Member schools also have access to the Microsoft Innovative Educators Experts (MIE Experts) for staff, to help them drive innovation among everyone within the school community.
