Malta: Call for measures to strengthen EFL sector

teach-English-in-Malta.jpgMalta's leading EFL organisation is asking the government to give the industry greater financial support in an upcoming budget, says the Malta Independent.

The Federation of English Language Teaching Organisations of Malta (FELTOM) believes that the budget for 2014 should be another step in strengthening the tourism and educational sectors.

The teaching English as a foreign language sector has grown considerably over the past years and last year contributed to over €135 million to the local economy. In addition, this industry is directly generating employment for hundreds of teachers. Thousands of host families also benefit directly from this industry which last year alone attracted over 81,000 students to Malta.

Looking ahead, FELTM is proposing that in education Government:

  • Strengthens literacy programmes in schools
  • Focuses on bilingualism in schools
  • Commences a postgraduate degree on teaching of English
