QRCS trains Qatar University social service social worker students
Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has trained a group of social worker students of Qatar University (QU), in partial fulfillment of their academic requirements for graduation in the academic year 2019-2020. Over three consecutive months, six seniors at the Department of Social Sciences, College of Arts and Sciences, attended as full-time interns at QRCS’s Volunteering and Local Development Division. They were engaged in the day-to-day activities of the division’s social workers, from receiving, examining, and deciding on aid applications to conducting research on social issues and phenomena to understand them and propose potential solutions. Among the skills acquired by the Qatari students were one-on-one interviews, case studies, field visits, reporting, listening, observation, and data collection and analysis. The internship was part of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed by QRCS and QU to work together on research topics of common concern; training and consultation programs; and capacity-building in first aid, disaster management, social work, and other fields of specialty.
