eSkills Malta Foundation promotes digital skills through new initiatives


The eSkills Malta Foundation held a range of activities in 2018, including new initiatives, to promote the digital skills that are needed to meet the competitive challenges facing Malta’s economy. 

One of the major initiatives was the launch of the ‘Guidelines to increase and retain women in ICT’, which highlights the issue of low participation of women in the ICT sector. The Foundation has also pledged to reach out to 60 teachers every year to help them give career guidance and counselling for students pursuing a career in ICT. At the same, one of their main goals is also to develop the IT profession, and last year the two-day training course on the e-Competence Framework (e-CF) was carried out in collaboration with CEPIS and ITPE.
