Our Initiatives

OVERVIEW OF THE YOUTH GUARANTEE INITIATIVES


Based on preventive and assistive measures, each Youth Guarantee initiative is designed to help young people continue their education, develop their skills and competencies, and meet their training goals to increase their chances of finding satisfaction and success in the world of work.​

The Youth Guarantee project is comprised of four education and employment related initiatives:
1.      NEET Activation Scheme II
Developed for young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEETs), participants will be provided with practical skills training, as well as a work experience with an employer based on their skills and preferences; or an accredited course (e.g. MCAST, ITS) of one’s choice. Throughout the programme, participants will be awarded with an allowance, provided they meet attendance requirements.


2.      SEC Preventive Classes
       Offered over five weeks (July - August), these free revision classes are a valuable opportunity for students who have failed their May SEC exams to prepare for their resits the following September. Students can choose up to three core subjects (including one science subject) from the following: English, Maltese, Maths, Biology and Physics.

3.      MCAST Preventive Classes
Students under the age of 25 who fail one of the exams through Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 of their respective course at the Malta College for Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) are offered free remedial classes during the summer period, in preparation for their final assessments the following September.
 
4.      ICT Summer Courses
       This summer programme is designed to help young people gain additional ICT skills (ECDL Core or Level 2), and consequently boost their chances of successful employment. In addition to a free daily lunch, participants will also be awarded with an allowance and certification, provided they meet attendance requirements.
