450 courses in 77 different subjects for adults

Education does not come to an end when the obligatory school age is reached. The Directorate for Learning for Life is receiving applications from adults for the forthcoming scholastic year to follow one of 450 courses whether academical or whether in handcrafts, among others.

The Director of the Directorate for Research, Learning for Life, and Employability, Alex Farrugia, said that 450 courses covering 77 subjects are on offer. The courses will be held at eight centres.

Farrugia said this will include courses in 11 languages, including German, Spanish and Russian. There will also be courses in basic reading skills, writing, mathematics and computer studies as well as revision courses at Ordinary and Advanced Levels, computer familiarisation and vocational courses.

He said those who do not academically succeed at first in the educational field are welcome to participate and try again because this is an important concept. Some want to improve their skills, perhaps to secure better employment and there are those who do it as a hobby or to obtain self-satisfaction.

The Director said there will be courses in ganutell (gold and silver wire embroidery), mosaic, ceramics, sewing and cooking.

Education Minister Evarist Bartolo said the country’s future lies in long-term education because the time has come when learning is lifelong.
