In Malta, there are now a few schemes available to encourage and fund, training and development. One scheme is directed at employers and there are two other schemes available for individuals. Below is a short description of each.
For the Employer
Make the most of your Training Budget
The new funding scheme aimed at employers, is called Investing in Skills. It is administered by Jobsplus and was launched in April 2017, and will go on until June 2020.
Depending on the size and the annual turnover and/or annual balance sheet total your organisation could benefit from 50% to 70% refund on the eligible costs.
Agilis Academy’ courses are eligible for this funding. The scheme is more streamlined, and easier than the previous funding scheme. Further Agilis Academy can assist you in your application for these funds. Contact Agilis Academy here.

For the Individual
Are you looking for that training to strengthen or expand your skills, or that will help you make your next career move?
Many local organisations today are looking for industry certified ICT team members. Are you that one step away from achieving this?
Is there any other training you are looking for, in Management, Human Resources or other soft skills?
Now it costs less for your company to train you.
Are you looking for your Organisation to fund your training, but have been unsuccessful as yet?
Your organisation can now can get from 50% to 70 % refund on the training costs they pay for you.
You can approach your Human Resources Department and ask them to apply for your training under the Investing In Skills Scheme so that it will cost them less. Please find details here.
Are you looking for training independently from your employer?
The Get Qualified incentive is administered by the Malta Enterprise and is applicable to individuals following a course of studies leading to a certification, diploma, degree or post-graduate degree courses, and who finance their own studies. Courses must be classified as level 5 or higher under the MQF grading structure.
Upon successful completion the student will benefit from a tax credit, therefore recovering up to 70% of the costs incurred.
