Director of Educational Guidance Department at the Ministry of Education and Higher Education Moza al Mudahka said the meeting was a response to Qatar's vision for creativity, independent thinking, constructive initiatives as well as attention to academic achievement in all fields of specialisation. She added that it provided an opportunity to have a discussion with the academic deputies and to define their roles and responsibilities, as well as the levels of support provided by the educational counsellor in schools to teachers and coordinators. The meeting also highlighted the classification of teachers according to the levels of support provided to them during the past year, which is 75 percent general support, 11 percent intensive support and 14 percent self development.
