MCAST

The Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology is the country’s leading vocational education and training institution. Melita Foundation will be supporting MCAST in the development of an online platform that will give students the opportunity to gain job experience with companies.

The main role of the College is to provide vocational education and training to Maltese young people to satisfy the requirements of the local industry. Through a well-designed digital platform with AI components, students will be matched to a paid work-based project with a predefined timeframe based on their skills and competencies. The work is then linked with a given mentor and industry sponsor giving them valuable work experience and enhances their knowledge and skills. Such a project will benefit not only students but also industrial partners, NGO’s as well as academic institutions.

Working together for a better future

Since our launch in 2020, The Melita Foundation has supported dozens of projects run by many diverse organisations. Project beneficiaries range from the very young to the very young-at-heart, from the the very local – such as supporting STEM skills development for school children in the Three Cities – to projects which will have an impact beyond our borders: supporting extensive tree planting; developing skills in maritime law and conservation; preserving parts of our heritage entwined with our diaspora.
