Ministry of Education and Higher Education Adopts New Part-Time Work Policy Measures in Public Schools

Doha: The Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE) announced new procedures for implementing a part-time work policy under Cabinet Resolution No. (13) of 2021, to improve the work environment and provide the necessary flexibility for teachers and administrators.

The MoEHE said the part-time work system will be available to Qatari academics and administrators according to regulations and conditions that have been circulated to schools, and will ensure that tasks are organized in a way that does not affect the educational process, and in a manner that is consistent with the interests of students and the school.

It added that this system will not be applied during exam periods or the month of Ramadan.

This part-time work system requires that the employee be of Qatari nationality, not hold leadership or supervisory positions in the school, and have successfully passed the probationary period.

Director of the Human Resources Department at the MoEHE, Ibrahim Rajab Al Kuwari, said that implementing the
part-time work system is an important positive step towards promoting a more flexible work environment in public schools.

He added that the Ministry is committed to providing full support to teachers and administrators, and providing work options that ensure the ideal balance between work and personal life for those working in the educational field, in line with the third national development strategy that focuses on increasing flexibility in the workplace, ensuring a balance between job and family obligations.

The MoEHE noted that this decision will come into effect at the beginning of the academic year 2024-2025, as the competent authorities are scheduled to implement it according to the requirements of the work context and its needs.
