Launch of Diploma in Joinery and Furniture making


In an event held at MCAST Paola, the Furniture Manufacturing Business Section launched a collaboration with MCAST and MG2I. Through this collaboration fifteen new students starting MCAST’s Diploma in Joinery and Furniture Making Course will be offered part-time employment and on the job training at seven furniture manufacturing companies. These companies, who form part of the membership of The Malta Chamber, will be receiving students at their factories from Wednesday to Friday each week, with students to attend lectures at MCAST in the first two days of the week.

“This collaboration illustrates what MCAST is all about. We want our students to work as they learn, and also to use work and real-life experience as an educational tool,” said MCAST Principal Profs Joachim James Calleja.

In her address to the new students The Malta Chamber President Marisa Xuereb emphasised the important impact that collaborations such as this could have in reviving industries. “Our manufacturing sector is facing severe shortages in trained workers, and this is also true in the furniture manufacturing industry. By partnering with educational institutions like MCAST The Malta Chamber is helping to address this shortage which is a primary concern for our members.”

The seven companies who will be taking on employees as part of this collaboration are Joinwell Ltd., Domestica Ltd., Shaker Ltd., Delia Woodworks Ltd., FX Borg Furniture Ltd., JDS Manufacturing Ltd. and Trends Manufacturing Ltd.
