Skills for Work International Study Trip to Malta

Following the Skills for Work & AONTAS Study Trip to Malta hosted by the Ministry for Education and Employment of Malta, the group returned with lots of information on how the educational system operates and in particularly the role workplace education plays in supporting adult learners already in employment or seeking new career opportunities.

Over the course of the three days the group visited various educational organisations and companies. Some of which included a visit to the Institute of Tourism Studies, College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) and Toyota car manufactures. We were also invited to participate on two adult education courses being delivered in the Lifelong Learning Centre at Msida. As the saying goes “no such thing as a free lunch!”… after breakfast each morning the group wrote up brief reports reflecting our experiences on all the events of the previous day.

One of the highlights of the visit was the invitation to meet with the Irish Ambassador to Malta, Padraig Mc Coscair at the Embassy where Adrian Moore (Irish Rail) presented him with a bronze commemoration coin of the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.

From our arrival in Malta to returning home to Dublin, everything ran very smoothly thanks to the excellent organisational skills of Christianne Fenech, Projects Manager, and Directorate for Lifelong Learning (Malta) and Saorlaith Ni Bhroin AONTAS (Ireland).
