The ICT Career Exposure Experience (CEE) Week 2016 / 2017 will this year run between 14th November 2016 to 19th May 2017.
The eSkills Malta Foundation together with the Education Psycho-Social services Section within the Ministry for Education and Employment, will be collaborating together with the industry and public entities to organise a week-long opportunity for selected Form 4 students to witness the different occupations within the ICT industry.
The ICT Career Exposure Experience Week helps to give students real-world knowledge of how the ICT sector works. Run by the eSkills Malta Foundation the ICT Career Exposure Experience Week targets students aged between 14 and 15 offering them a taste of what it would be like to be part of a vibrant ICT sector. On the other hand this career exposure experience could help transform Malta’s ICT Industry.
How could your company fit in?
If you are an ICT related company then we would like to invite you on board to form part of this exciting programme. We hope that by means of this Career Exposure Experience Week we are able to encourage more young people to pursue post secondary studies that could lead them towards a future as ICT professionals.
This initiative also hopes to meet the challenges that the local ICT industry is facing when it comes to human resources and eSkills.
Students enrolled on the programme will get to spend a week at one of the participating company’s premises learning more about ICT by observing competent workers. Through mentoring they will also be able to understand and appreciate more about the way ICT and ICT related industries work, observe how technology is applied and make the connection between their studies and their future socio economic independence.
The success of this initiative depends on the companies that sign up. eSkills Malta Foundation looks forward to hearing from as many enterprises as possible and to working with them on the development and betterment of Malta’s future ICT and ICT related workforce.
