Seminar oneSkills for Employment and Growth.
06 June 2012 - 06 June 2012
The Malta Information Technology Agency (MITA) through the eSkillsAlliance and MEUSACwould like to invite the general public to a seminar oneSkills for Employment and Growth on 6th June in MITA. Triq il-ferrovija, St. Venera. Malta.
The demand for eSkills has been growing rapidly in the last decade. Indeed it is envisaged that by 2015 90% of all jobs inEurope will require some set of eSkills whatever the service or service sector. Nevertheless a number of eSkills shortages, gaps, mismatches as well as a persistent digital divide are affecting productivity growth, competitiveness, innovation, employment and social cohesion inEurope. Malta, like other EU Member States, needs to secure a sufficient professional eSkills base and to enable its citizens to strengthen their eSkills in a process of effective lifelong learning.
During this seminar, a number of speakers will highlight the relevance of eSkills across Europe, includingMalta. There will be two workshops which will tackle Lifelong learning in ICT, and the Industry’s perspective and employment opportunities arising from eSkills. The workshops will provide a platform to discuss the challenges and benefits arising from a strong eSkills base inMalta. This discussionwill be helpful for policy-related discussions and formulations.
