Bridging the gap between education and the workplace


During the launch of the MCAST Prospectus for 2021-2022, the President of The Malta Chamber, Marisa Xuereb, weighed in on the important role that this vocational education institution plays in bridging the gap between education and the workplace.

Ms Xuereb, who also forms part of the MCAST Board of Governors, noted that the College holds the key towards an enhanced educational system that prepares students for careers of the future. “Vocational education is at the heart of MCAST’s mission, and its success in fulfilling its role as it celebrates 20 years since its establishment depends on how industry-driven and future-focused its courses are. This requires constant dialogue between MCAST and industry, and the agility to respond to changing needs very quickly,” said The Chamber President.

“As a Chamber, we recognise that our biggest asset is our people: our ability to remain competitive in existing niches and diversify into new ones depends greatly on the quality of our workforce. MCAST and industry need to be partners in developing a workforce that will benefit the country as a whole,” said Xuereb.

The event was also addressed by MCAST Principal and CEO Prof James Calleja, MCAST President Prof Ian Refalo, and Hon. Justyne Caruana, Minister for Education.
