As a part of our commitment to ensure that employers and migrant workers can contribute to Qatar’s ICT growth, we are making available a range of content and learning materials, which will help migrant workers to have a better understanding of how to use ICT tools and e-government services.
Through the Better Connections Program, we aim to provide migrant workers with all of the necessary information and provide migrant workers with awareness about fundamental human rights (Rights and Responsibilities) to maintain a harmonious working environment and to bring motivation and self-sufficiency to workers’ lives in Qatar.
Learning resources include a range of interactive learning modules to support the digital inclusion of migrant workers and to enable the implementation of The Better Connections Program. We have developed three e-learning modules:
Basic ICT and Internet Skills:
- Basic ICT and Internet skills curriculum
- Microsoft Digital Literacy curriculum
Be Smart and Learn:
