By 2022 the education sector in Doha is set to undergo massive transformation. The country is expected to have 12 new schools that will have a capacity of 1,500 to 2,000 students per school. As Qatar is on its road to development, the school operators and developers recognize as it as a wise opportunity for growth.
The key factors influencing the Doha’s education sector have been stated in the Doha Education Overview published by Colliers International. The publication attributed rising population to be one of the main reasons that is leading to the demand for education in the area.
The same report suggests that the population of Qatar touched a figure of 2.21 million in 2014 from 1.45 million in 2008. The predictions are pegged at 3.09 million, 4% growth rate and 3.53 million, 6% growth rate by 2022. This accelerating pace of the education sector is also being fueled a huge population base of Generation X, Y and Z along with the expatriates. The stated generations are likely to be young parents and school attendees responsible for the changing scenario of the education sector in the region.
This transient population will also dictate the terms of education curriculums in Doha steering them toward international educational standards such as the English of American. Both these patterns offer better flexibility when it comes to private education choices later in life. This demand will also be supported by the Qatari population that prefers to send their children to a private school over a public school.
