Work Placement Scheme

The Work Placement Scheme is aimed at providing training to participants following a course offered by Jobsplus, which includes a practical component. Namely:
  • Vocational Education and Training Award in Child Care (0-3years)
  • Vocational Education and Training Award  for Care Workers for Persons with Disability
  • Vocational Education and Training Award for Care Workers for the Elderly
The Work Placement Scheme gives Jobsplus’ trainees the opportunity to acquire both theoretical and practical training. The duration of the Work Placement Scheme is of a maximum of 26 weeks, on an average of 30 hours/week. The on-the-job training will take place at the employer’s premises with whom the trainee is placed. The hours trainees have to perform is set by Jobsplus, although trainees are allowed a degree of attendance flexibility ranging approximately between 20 hours to 40 hours per week. The classroom training programmes are recognised by the NCFHE and pegged at respective levels with the Malta Qualifications Framework (MQF). Participants are paid a training allowance, payable by Jobsplus for every hour attended, which is calculated on the national minimum wage. 

The Work Placement Scheme forms part of the Training for Employment project, which is co-financed by the European Social Fund 2014-2020.
