(Malta College for Arts, Science and Technology)​
​Published: 20 May 2020
Running till: 1 July 2020

1.        Background

In January 2021, MCAST kicked off a consultation process to take stock, review and chart its strategic direction for the six years ahead.  The process, split into two phases, is reaching out to internal stakeholders (management, staff and students) and to external stakeholders (including employers, sectoral stakeholders, unions, social partners, policy makers and the general public). This process will culminate in the launch of the College strategic direction in quarter 4 of 2021. 

The evolution of the College has been characterized by a constant drive to provide an opportunity for students to obtain professional and vocational education and training, allow them to possess a myriad of skills that are relevant for industry through its full-time courses and part-time courses.  With the next cycle of development approaching, the administration at the College, has an opportunity to revisit the positive developments and challenging aspects as a result of the reforms implemented at the College.
