Malta Chamber presents its ‘education for the future’ document to the Opposition


A delegation from The Malta Chamber, led by President Ms Marisa Xuereb and CEO Dr Marthese Portelli, presented the recently launched document prepared by its Education Thematic Committee, ‘Education for the Future’ to Hon. Clyde Puli, Shadow Minister for Education & Sports.

During the meeting at The Malta Chamber, President Xuereb highlighted the three priorities in the said document.
• Vocational educational training
• Upskilling / reskilling
• Future of education

Ms Xuereb said that “the main aim behind the creation of the Education Thematic Committee was to bridge the gap between education and industry. By prioritising these three factors, we can ensure that the current and future workforces are prepared well enough by obtaining the right skills to address the employers’ and economy’s needs.”

In this context, the committee was set up to propose tangible measures to strengthen the alignment between educational curriculum and employer requirements while also serve as a catalyst to bring the necessary change that will benefit educational institutions, students and employers.

The document dwells on the importance of lifelong learning, having periodical curriculum reviews, developing and empowering educators, and introducing Social Emotional Learning and Service Learning for both students and teachers.

The Chairperson of the committee is Ms Claudine Attard, the Vice Chairperson is Christopher Bezzina while the members are Ms Mariella Galea, Mr Stephan Vella, Dr Nadia Maria Vassallo, Ms Fiona Captur, Mr Antonello Cappitta. The coordinator of the committee is Ms Julia Aquilina.
