Reference Number: PR 2014, Press Release Issue Date: Sep 14, 2012
 
The Ministry of Education and Employment in Malta and the Ministry of Labour and Capacity Building of Libya signed a Memorandum of Understanding outlining the ways of cooperation. 

This is the result of various ongoing meetings between the two parties that have been taking place since last January. Today, together with the Memorandum of Understanding, two agreements between the respective Ministries and MCAST and the Libyan Higher Vocational Institute in Ta’ Giorni were signed. 

The Memorandum of Understanding continues to strengthen the friendship between the two nations and it consolidates the relationship of collaboration between the two Ministries. 

Hon Dolores Cristina, Minister of Education and Employment said that the Maltese government is proud to assist the Libyan People in achieving higher levels of training especially in the vocational and technical areas. 

The two agreements will help Libyan students to be trained in vocational subjects particularly in electronic engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, welding and ICT.  A group of 100 students will receive tuition for six months at the Libyan Higher Vocational Institute in Ta’ Giorni while another group of 50 students will start their studies at MCAST.  Both groups will also learn the English language.

The Ministry of Education and Employment is looking forward for further discussions with the Libyan Authorities on other initiatives of collaboration which were discussed in the visit of the Libyan Delegation.  Other initiatives include that more Libyan students visit Malta to learn the English language and the strengthening of the collaboration between the Libyan Higher Vocational Institute and other Maltese Educational Institutions.  There are also plans to commence new initiatives of collaboration between the Employment and Training Corporation and the Ministry of Labour and Capacity Building.
