Introduction:Investment Driving License (IDL) is a program designed to provide you with a clear understanding of the investment basic fundamentals, with the aim of differentiating you from the rest of the crowd. The Program targets the youth generation, to develop their minds and create confident, knowledgeable and effective future leaders with great value to themselves and to their societies. With the IDL program, you can easily and effectively enable everyone in your organization to gain an essential understanding of the industry.The Investment Driving License program will be introduced throughout the MENA region, where it focuses on delivering material that satisfies the region it serves. By acquiring this License, people will have the potential of working for a well established company or it will serve as a base for further studies in the field of investment and Finance.
Target DemographicsThe IDL certificate has no prerequisites or requirements; it’s a simplified certificate that is intended to serve as an awareness and educational element to anyone who wants to learn about the fundamentals of Finance and investment. However Qatar Financial House is focusing on the Youth of Qatar particularly ages 17 through 20 to serve as the major age group to acquire this certificate.
The main purpose of this certificate is to serve as a support to those who graduated high school but are not intending on going to university. 2010 Statistics show that the overall population in Qatar was around 1,531,842, around 96% of the total population in Qatar is literate and from this 96% only 22% finish high school which would be around 323,526 people, and from those 22% only 45,293 or 14% go to universities. These statistics serves as a sample indicator of the educational levels in Qatar .
These statistics show that there is a big percent of the community, who have not attend universities and have no qualifications that support a working career. Introducing the IDL certificate to those youth unwilling to attend a secondary level education will be a step towards increasing their thoughts on acquiring a degree or give them the necessary key points they need to succeed and have a long flourishing career path.
Never the less does that mean that the IDL program is only applicable for the youth, it is a program initiated for anyone who wishes to enhance their knowledge of Finance and Investment. It can serve as a preliminary step to other advanced Certificates like the CMA and CFA.
To this end, we have designed the IDL Certificate. It is a comprehensive, global, and corporate wide education program designed to give all professional disciplines outside of investment roles a clear understanding of the essentials of the industry, their roles, and their professional and ethical responsibilities within it.
IDL raises workforce competence by helping employees understand industry functions, relationships and their role and professional responsibilities, helping them see where they fit in the big picture.
IDL provides a common global standard across all functions that will help your employees, your company, and ultimately the industry, perform better together.
IDL helps your organization stand out from the crowd by signaling an institutional commitment to ethics. It also helps your employees to gain knowledge over and above their peers.
IDL gives your organization and the general public greater confidence and trust in the decisions your employees make on behalf of the business, contributing to stronger morale, motivation and loyalty.
This program is designed by using a simplified version of the JIA (Junior Investment Analyst) program. This will be done through combining the necessary essential fundamentals and tools into one new book that will be authorized from Schweser as a professional Certificate.
The book will have both Arabic and English Languages to help guarantee the information is well understood by the students.
