Mr Carmel Cachia, Chief Administrator of eSkills Malta Foundation was invited by the Foundation for the Promotion of Entrepreneurial Initiatives (FPEI) to participate in a panel discussion about the softskills for the ICT sector on the 22nd of February 2023. The Panel Members also included Dr Joshua Ellul and Ms Fran Moisa.
In the context of rapid socio-economic change, exponential technological advances, and the burgeoning ICT sector of the emerging fourth industrial revolution, business leaders identify a growing need for managers and employees who possess soft skill capacities, such as critical thinking, people management, etc. Yet, most ICT small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and micro-firms cannot afford soft skills training programs, especially in these difficult times.
The Art of Effective Communication in the IT Industry
The panel discussion is part of the launch of an e-learning platform offering soft skills courses tailored to ICT workforce needs. The project partnership includes seven teams of locally, nationally, and internationally-recognized experts representing universities, SMEs, e-training organizations, non-profit foundations, and VET providers from 6 countries: Malta, The Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, and Slovenia. FPEI is representing Malta in this project.
