A Survey of Qatari Secondary School Seniors: Methods and Results
To help Qatar identify priorities for developing post-secondary educational offerings, this report presents the results of a survey of Qatari students enrolled in their final year of secondary school concerning their attitudes about further education and future work plans. Although males and females agreed on the importance of post-secondary education, they differed on their intention to pursue it. Male students reported being very certain or somewhat certain they could get a high-paying and secure job without seeking further education, whereas females indicated that they would need post-secondary education to get the job they wanted. To better respond to its workforce demands, Qatar should restructure its incentives for attracting more males into post-secondary education and training, and continue efforts to remove constraints on female labor force participation.
