PUE Central Office

PUE Central Office

Pre University Education (PUE) is the QF division which oversees QF Schools and various supporting functions. PUE has established several initiatives that support educators in Qatar to have the best possible impact on the students under their care. Staff who support multiple schools are often employed centrally by the PUE Office. Two prominent portfolios within PUE are The Learning Centre and The Educational Development Institute.

The Learning Center (TLC) is the centralized student support services team for Qatar Foundation Schools. Our team, comprised of special educators and school-based specialists, focuses on the following areas to ensure the academic growth and success of all learners:

• Inclusive Education:
Collaborate with all schools to develop a whole school inclusive educational approach that includes a tiered system of supports for ECE through grade 12, with all services embedded into the school setting. The tiered system focuses on promotion of age-appropriate development, prevention of academic concerns for at risk students, and intervention for students with developmental and learning challenges.
• Capacity Building:
Build capacity in staff through providing professional learning opportunities and consultation to support the development and sustainability of inclusion.
• Direct Service:
Provide small group direct service to focus on prevention; and provide individual or small group direct service as intervention.
• Parent Education and Support:
Provide education, consultation, and support to parents related to their child’s developmental and learning needs.

Meanwhile, the Education Development Institute strives to be a centre of excellence in professional learning by supporting the growth and development of K-12 educators in Qatar and beyond. EDI’s mission is to lead professional learning and development, support curriculum improvement and build leadership capacity to improve student outcomes in pre-K-12 education.

To achieve this mission, we are committed to building partnerships with highly recognized institutions, recognizing and amplifying pockets of excellence within schools in Qatar and designing and facilitating high quality professional learning events that respond to the needs of educators within their own context.
