The Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (Mcast) recently issued for public consultation its strategic plan – an ambitious, seven-pillar policy document intended to guide its investments, academic focus, networking approach and quality structures for the next cycle of the college’s development in the years 2019 to 2021.

The college said that its evolution has been characterised by a constant drive to provide students with opportunities to obtain professional and vocational education and training, and acquire skills relevant for industry. During the consultation the college administration revi­sited the positive developments and challenging aspects as a result of the reforms implemented at the college.

The four-week public consultation phase, which ends on March 8, forms part of an extensive eight-month consultation process launched last August to take stock, review and chart Mcast’s strategic direction for the years ahead.

The first phase of the consultation process included a seminar with Mcast’s senior management team, internal workshops with lecturing staff members in each Mcast institute, an internal consultation workshop with administrative and support staff at the college, and a first round-table consultation session with employers, social partners and other stakeholders of the college.

To supplement the feedback received during these workshops and meetings, Mcast is now soliciting feedback from the public on how it can improve its strategic direction.

The process will culminate in the second quarter of this year with the launch of a three-year strategic direction for the college.
