Ministry for Education


CEDEFOP has just published its latest briefing note “ANALYSING AND COMPARING VET QUALIFICATIONS”.

Vocational education and training (VET) continues to enjoy a high profile and an ever-present feature on the government’s education agenda. One of the major developments reflecting this agenda was the reform “My Journey – Achieving through Different Paths” that introduced VET and applied subjects alongside academic/general subjects during the last three years of compulsory education (Year 9 -11). The two institutions at further and higher education; the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) and the Institute of Tourism Studies (ITS) continued to develop and expand their facilities and their education programmes. providing a wide choice of full-time and part-time courses including undergraduate and post graduate degrees. This publication highlights the need that qualifications are relevant to the national context while at the same time ensuring their comparability at an international level.’
