Code Week 11 - 17 October



The technology revolution is all around us and many of our daily interactions are with computers.  Learning to code helps us understand to create the digital services we use everyday .  Whether you create a website or simulate the traffic on our roads, or create an online game, coding is everywhere.  It is a way of looking at the world; an enabler and a discipline, a life skill for the digital era.   
 
Learning to code is a powerful way of exploring ideas and creating new solutions for work and play. 
 
Coding skills deserve to be celebrated. Join us and thousands across Europe in a week of activities on coding. You can find out more about activities across Europe here.

Get Qualified​ 

 
 
 
Get Qualified is an initiative that supports the personal development of individuals for the achievement of qualifications and certifications required by industry. The incentive is applicable to individuals following a course of studies leading to a certification, diploma, degree or post-graduate degree courses. Upon successful completion the student will benefit from a tax credit thus recovering part of the costs incurred.

 
Students following courses approved by Malta Enterprise are granted tax credits on the following costs:  
  • fees paid by the individual to the university, institution or other entity recognized by Malta Enterprise for the training and educational services leading to the approved qualification.
  • fees for sitting for examinations required to achieve the approved qualification.

IT certifications are within your reach.  A range of opportunities that are supported by Government are available here.​
