International Forum in Malta

The International Forum took place in Malta, in the Fortress Builders in La Valleta on the 31st May 2017. This forum, is the first forum of WP3 – Mobilization and awareness raising among employers. 

All the project partners participated and there was an interesting debated about the need of skills development in the maritime sector. The audience was diverse, with employers, training entities, students and public authorities. 

In the panel discussion, the speakers have identified the main obstacles for CVET as the social stigma, that still exists, the need to ensure quality and the importance to design qualifications in terms of competences.

It was stated that public authorities should take the floor and give the first step to overcome such obstacles and create the right environment to ease the access to VET. In order to do so, it is important to focus on the individuals that ask for training.
