CITY & GUILDS

About

City & Guilds Malta has been offering courses to individuals interested in exploring career choices within the care industry since 2009. Born out of a shortage of people working in the industry locally, the Group felt the need to out reach out to the community and extend its training facilities to the public.

The course includes a practice placement within one of the company’s care homes. During this time, successful candidates will be awarded a City & Guilds certificate equivalent to Level 2 of the Qualifications and Credit Framework of the UK (QFC) and to Level 3 of the European and Maltese Qualifications Framework (EQF & MQF) for each course.
