The Ministry of Education and Employment in Malta and the Ministry of Labour and Capacity Building of Libya signed a Memorandum of Understanding outlining the ways of cooperation between the two countries..
This Memorandum of Understanding is the result of various ongoing meetings that have been taking place since last January.
Together with the Memorandum of Understanding, two agreements between the respective Ministries, MCAST and the Libyan Higher Vocational Institute in Ta’ Giorni were signed.

A group of 100 students will receive tuition for six months at the Libyan Higher Vocational Institute in Ta’ Giorni while another group of 50 students will start their studies at MCAST. Both groups will also learn the English language.
Minister of Education and Employment Dolores Cristina said that the Maltese government is proud to assist the Libyan People in achieving higher levels of training especially in the vocational and technical areas.
Other initiatives include that more Libyan students visit Malta to learn the English language and the strengthening of the collaboration between the Libyan Higher Vocational Institute and other Maltese Educational Institutions.
