Athlete Career+ Workshop concludes

DOHA, The Athlete365 Career + Outreach Workshop organized by the Athletes Commission of the Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) was successfully concluded at the Qatar Olympic Academy on Monday.

The workshop brought together a number of team Qatar athletes who had represented the country in previous Olympics Games and Paralympic Games. All participants have appreciated the vital topics and lectures delivered by the workshop’s key speaker and former team Qatar swimmer Nada Arkaji along with some officials from the Qatar Olympic Committee.

Career+ is a programme that empowers athletes to maximise their education and employment opportunities and helps them stride confidently into a dual or post-sports career. It supports athletes at all stages of their career, helping them discover their potential and plan for their life beyond the world of competitive sport through a blend of advice, training and peer-to-peer learning.

Launched in 2005, the ACP helps elite and Olympic athletes successfully manage the difficult transition from sport to a new career, through professional development and job placement support.

By 2014, the programme has supported more than 22,000 elite athletes from over 100 countries and five continents with training and job placements.
