The Malta Business Bureau, which forms part of the Leader partnership, comprising seven European organisations operating in the fields of vocational education and entrepreneurship, recently announced the launch of the Leader project website. is now serving as a one-stop-shop for students as well as academic and in-company trainers to learn more about the project and access the resources that are currently being set up to promote people skills development. These include a soft skills curriculum for European students in vocational education and training (VET), a train-the-trainer guidebook, and ultimately, a serious game that is expected to complement more traditional forms of teaching and training.

At present, the game developers are interviewing a selected sample of students to assess their needs and demands and ensure that they stand to benefit from the real-world, decision-making scenarios that will be featured in the digital game, demonstrating how specific skills work in different situations.

As the partner organisation responsible for the project’s dissemination actions, the Malta Business Bureau was tasked with the development of this website and e-learning platform.

MBB CEO Joe Tanti said: “As an organisation that has the interests of the business community at heart, it is important for us to contribute to initiatives that support the education and training of our future industry leaders. Students, academic tutors and industry trainers have a lot to learn from one another and should always find time to consult each another and work collectively.”

He thanked the Leader partners for the time and energy they are investing in the implementation of the project, and especially acknowledged the sterling work conducted by MBB executives Sarah Abdilla and Marija Elena Borg in the setting up of this user-friendly platform.
