Our Partners

Established in 2001, the MCAST is the country’s leading vocational education and training institution.  Through our three Colleges, namely Foundation, Techncial and University Colleges and six  Institutes in Malta and the Gozo Campus, we offer 180 full-time and over 300 part-time vocational courses ranging from certificates to Master degrees (MQF Level 1 to Level 7).

We collaborate closely with local industries to ensure the knowledge, skills and competencies within our curricular are appropriate and relevant to a dynamic and forward-looking economy.  We support small and medium-sized enterprises through a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses work-based learning through the newly launched Apprenticeships Programme, the various entrepreneurship initiatives and through our MG2I (MCAST commercial arm) services whereby we provide training courses tailor-made to their needs.

Our relationship with industry stimulates the College’s success – our programmes are flexible, relevant and responsive to the aspirations of our students and to the needs of industries which are constantly evolving to meet the challenges of a changing global economy.
