Agreement with commercial agricultural groups for strengthening teaching of agribusiness

The Ministry for Education has signed an agreement in principle with commercial agricultural groups to strengthen the teaching of agribusiness which is being offered as a vocational subject to Secondary School students.

The Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Frank Fabri, said that seven other vocational subjects have yet to have similar agreements, including four new vocational subjects that will be offered in Secondary Schools in the coming scholastic year.

Minister Evarist Bartolo said as a result of the agreement the experience of students will be enhanced because studies will become practical jointly with people working in the sector. He described the facilities for teaching agribusiness as being of a high level at the Żokrija School in Mosta and that there is a need for facilities at the Għammieri need to be improved for the use of post Secondary School students.

Paul Portelli, a full-time farmer from Rabat, said it is a great pleasure for farmers and those in the agricultural sector to show students what their work entails.
