This first short description on vocational education and training (VET) in Malta aims to contribute to better understanding of the country's system and recent developments.

Unlike many other EU Member States, unemployment in Malta is not a major labour market problem. Its dynamic economy developed fast and withstood the crisis well.

New sectors are emerging and employment has been growing. In a context of low educational attainment, high early leaving and an ageing population, this has led to skills shortages in several key sectors of the economy. 

The report analyses trends, contextualises policy responses and highlights areas of recent progress. It paints a picture of an expanding and dynamically renewing VET system shaped by reforms that have been at the heart of Malta’s response to social and economic challenges.
