The Qatar Leadership Academy, an educational institution established by Qatar Foundation in collaboration with Qatar Armed Forces, is to deliver the ICDL certification program to students and teachers through an agreement with ICDL Arabia.

Under the agreement, the Qatar Leadership Academy is now accredited to provide lectures, training and examinations as part of the updated NEW ICDL program, which allows learners to combine various modules that are best suited to their requirements. The modules will cover Base, Standard, and Advanced levels of skill.

Yousef Al Mansouri, Business Support Manager at Qatar Leadership Academy, said: "With strong ICT skills, teachers at the academy will be able to harness the power of technology to provide a more interactive and efficient teaching process, while students - with an enriched education experience - will be better prepared for life, work, and further learning. Learners can expect up-to-date lectures and hands-on trainings - which will then be validated by a test - when taking up the NEW ICDL program. They will be empowered and they will gain the needed confidence to succeed in today's age. This is the reason we recommend the program to both our teachers and students. Our partnership with ICDL GCC is indeed a welcome development."

Jamil Ezzo, Director General of ICDL GCC Foundation, said: "We are honored to team up with Qatar Leadership Academy in this important initiative to promote digital literacy in academic institutions and make today's generation more computer literate. We do this by strengthening their ICT skills and knowledge, targeting important areas to help them succeed. Further, we make sure that their ICT competencies are at par with the rest of the world, making them highly competitive in the global arena. Our partnership with the academy will further help us attain our goals and mission."
