Abstract: Over the past years, Malta has been investing in vocational education and training (VET) and has encouraged students to continue their education beyond school-leaving age. The national reform programme reflects the commitment to extend VET provision through consolidation of the main State VET provider, the Malta College for Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST). This led to a considerable investment in infrastructure and introduction of new and updated programmes, which helps open up access to VET for students without a compulsory education qualification and eases progression from VET to tertiary education. Similar initiatives were taken at the vocational training Institute of Tourism Studies (ITS). At lower secondary level (locally called secondary education), VET subjects in hospitality, IT, care and engineering were piloted in 2011 to students aged 14 onwards to raise awareness and interest in VET and to increase mobility between VET and general education.
