  • ETC receives a considerable number of requests for employment licenses for persons to be engaged as cleaners, housekeepers, labourers and care workers. Provided that ETC has a number of persons registering for such occupations proofs that we need to invest in more training so that employers would have a wider selection of persons from where to choose. Example of ad hoc request: follow up course in relation to electronics engineering, whereby trainees expressed the interest in following a course on tv and radio repairs and fault finding in electrical circuits.
  • Apprenticeship and traineeships unlike short courses offer on-the-job training, hence besides learning the theory within a formal setting, learners have the opportunity to practice what they learn at the workplace. Besides the theory learners acquire other skills such as working in a team, punctuality, working under pressure, time management, amongst other skills that are not learnt from school. Another 10% continued their studies three months after they completed their apprenticeship.

    1. 1. Training Programmes offered by theEmployment and TrainingCorporation1stFebruary 2013
    2. 2. Identifying the need for TrainingTraining Programmes Sources of information:• Vacancies received by the Corporation fromemployers• Skills profile of jobseekers• Labour and skills surveys• Feedback received from stakeholders duringformal and informal meetings
    3. 3. Training Initiatives Short courses Traineeships Apprenticeships Extended Skills Training Scheme (ESTS) Technician Apprenticeship Scheme (TAS) Training Subsidy Schemes Individuals Employers
    4. 4. Basic skills ETC trained 15,072 persons in 2011 of which35% in the following basic skills courses: Literacy (Maltese and English) Numeracy Basic ICT Job seeking skills
    5. 5. Impact of VET From 2009 till 2011, 41% of learners followingshort courses were in employment orcontinuing further studies. Most effective training programmes: Traineeships - in 2011, all persons completingtraineeship were in employment (125 persons) Apprenticeship - over the past four years, 75% ofthose completing apprenticeship remained inemployment either with the same employer orwith a different employer
    6. 6. Reasons % for short courses is low as 35% of thesewere following basic skills courses Why? 80% of jobseekers have education levelbelow SEC standard But these skills on their own do not lead toemployment Need to be supplemented by vocationaltraining to lead to employment
    7. 7. Challenges Problem should be solved at source and bycompetent teachers This enables ETC to: focus on skills delivery that lead to level 2 and3 MQF qualifications which have validity in thelabour market Obtain NCFHE accreditation of all courses Focus on quality assurance
