Training Opportunities


Enhancing Employability through Training (EET)
This Programme aims to facilitate the access to developing the knowledge, skills and competences of the working age population. The scope behind it, is to offer training assistance to jobseekers needing to improve their skills to enter the labour market and to upgrade the existing skills of those individuals who wish to re-enter the labour market, find alternative employment and/or acquire new skills to meet the labour market demands.



ETC offers courses aimed at helping persons improve their education and acquire the required skills to find employment or retain it. Courses are available at different levels, from short courses of a few days, through to vocational award certificate courses, pegged to the Maltese and European Qualification Frameworks, that can be completed in a few weeks or months.

Traineeships are a dual system of occupational skill development, targeted at new labour market entrants, unemployed clients or employees involved in restructuring exercises. This flexible training solution addresses skill shortages and is being offered to employers willing to recruit participants qualified for a traineeship. The programmes offered are labour market driven, whereby the job preferences of the job seekers are matched with the requests made by Employers who participate in the scheme.
