The Office for Human Resources Management & Development organised an induction course programme spread over six days between Tuesday 15th and Tuesday 22nd January 2008. The programme was aimed at newly recruited support staff who was recently employed at the University of Malta, working in administration, faculties, centres and institutes. It gave the participants a basic understanding of the organisational structure and the several services offered by the University of Malta. During the programme, participants were provided with guidelines and tips on how to tackle their day-to-day tasks more effectively.  

On the first day of the programme, Dr Mary Anne Lauri, who is the Pro-Rector responsible for students and institutional affairs, gave a brief introduction of the University of Malta. The participants were then addressed by Mr Anthony Gellel, the University Registrar, who gave a brief explanation of the many functions of the Office of the Registrar, including the role of the Admissions & Records Office and the use of the University’s Student Information Management System (SIMS). Mr Gellel was assisted by the Ms Veronica Grech, Registrar Designate. Ms Stefania Fabri, Deputy Director of the International & EU Office, delivered a talk on the role of the same office, followed by a brief talk by Ms Anita Aloisio, Director of Finance, regarding the role of the Finance Office.
On the second day, Mr Mario Cassar gave a power-point presentation regarding the set-up of the Faculties, Centres and Institutes, and gave an overview of the work involved from admission of students up to the graduation period.

Campus tours were then held by Ms Angela Xuereb. These tours helped the participants to orientate themselves with the locations of the faculties, institutes, centres and other sections of the University. The fourth day finished off with a presentation on the use of the University’s website, held by Ms Angela Xuereb at one of the IT Services Laboratories.

The fifth day involved talks and presentations by Mr Albert Debono of the Student Advisory Services, assisted by Mr Noel Caruana, Fr John Vella and Ms Lorleen Farrugia from the Counselling Services, and Fr Jimmy Bartolo from the University Chaplaincy.

During each session, the new recruits were encouraged to actively participate in the discussions.  They were also given the opportunity to provide their general feedback on the course by means of an evaluation form, distributed to them on the last session of the course.  Participants who attended to at least eight hours of the programme were provided with a certificate of attendance.
