Seminar oneSkills for Employment and Growth.



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.
