TM\'s outreach to secondary schools
Transport Malta participated in BPW\’s career day. An initiative organised by Business and Professional Women – Malta, under the patronage of the Office of the President.
On Friday 4th March, Transport Malta provided guidance and information to girls from various secondary schools from Malta and Gozo. The event held in the Millenium Stand at Ta\’ Qali, provided the students with a unique opportunity to learn about careers in the Maritime, Aviation, Roads and Corporate Services sectors.
Marisa Micallef a Flag and Port State Inspector and Lorraine Cutajar, a Port Duty Officer gave students an insight on career opportunities within the Maritime industries. Melanie Waddell, a Flight Operations Inspector, did the same for the Aviation industry.
Mary Rose Pace, Financial Controller, Roberta Cilia, Training and Development Manager, Nighat John Akhtar, Training Coordinator and Jeanette Axisa, Chief Officer, shared their valuable experience within the Corporate Services Directorate.
There was a healthy exchange of information between Transport Malta\’s operatives, students and guidance teachers, on academic and specialised qualifications required to pursue and build a career in the transport sector.
This is part of various initiatives TM is pursuing to build the necessary skills and competences needed at present and in the future. Other initiatives are being undertaken with MCAST and the University of Malta. A pilot project was launched about 12 months ago, introducing apprentices at the Roads and Infrastructure Directorate and the Traffic Management and Road Safety Unit. The apprenticeship programme is being expanded in line with the requirements of other Directorates.
This week, school boys attending Maria Regina School will be visiting our Maritime and Civil Aviation Directorates to learn about these industries. An activity that will broaden their career paths.
