|2016||National Employee Skills Survey
||The National Commission for Further and Higher Education (NCFHE), Jobsplus and Malta Enterprise (ME) embarked on an Employee Skills Gap Survey. The objective is to gauge the extent of the existing skills gap, to contribute effectively to improvements in the educational system in Malta to make it more responsive to the needs of the labour market and to provide policy makers with the information necessary to identify the potential shortcomings of the Maltese labour market that could be hindering companies from finding employees with adequate skills. This exercise is deemed particularly important in light of the relatively strong and sustained growth recorded by the Maltese economy over recent years which requires an increasingly diversified set of skills to enable companies to meet market demand.
|2015||Employability Index Report of 2015||The Employability Index is one of the measures aimed at facilitating the transition from further and higher education to employment. The intended benefits of the Employability Index were highlighted in Malta’s National Reform Programme published in 2015.
The Employability Index will offer more guidance to students on the choices of jobs that are available for the various lines of studies by indicating to the student the potential of finding a job within the line of study being chosen.
This study aims at identifying students that may be at high risk of experiencing underemployment due to a mismatch between their educational attainment and their occupation.
