This joint ILO-UNESCO report provides a global, high-level overview of how digitalization is affecting TVET and skills systems. It draws on consultations with key stakeholders in a set of countries and international organizations to provide insights into the nature and scope of digitalisation and how it is likely to affect the management, delivery, assessment and certification of technical and vocational education and training. The study draws on developments in Brazil, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Malta, Mauritius, New Zealand, Slovenia, Turkey and the United States.

Based on the importance that VET has been given in the past years, the achievements and developments which Malta has registered in the sector, and the weight VET policy has gained in Europe, this document seeks to collate a brief review of the VET sector in Malta. Furthermore it provides a strategic opportunity to give an outlook on possible goals for the furthering and widening VET in Malta. Policy recommendations are two-pronged: addressing quality and attractiveness as well as ensuring labour market relevance. These notions are in themselves interlinked in providing and sustaining stronger vocational education in Malta.

Unlocking the Female Potential was designed to learn and understand the reasons behind the low female employment rate in Malta and Gozo, while at the same time promoting a culture of equality within the business sector in order to address labour market distortions. The overall objectives of the Project, of which this research forms part, is to address a two-fold overall objective, namely:

• To increase the overall female employment rate by providing indirect incentives to work.
• To provide policy makers with vital information through the research on the current situation of which this research forms part, of women in Malta and Gozo.
These objectives were, in turn, broken down into four specific objectives, namely:
• To understand the jobs/skills match and the inactive population in order to ensure employability;
• To create a need for businesses to become ‘certified equal opportunities employers’, to have a family-friendly environment at the work place;
• To incentivise the inactive to the labour market through better work arrangements available;
• And to further promote the need for a work/life balance both for men and women.

This report has been designed and published as part of this same project. It brings together all the components of the project and the activities that were held as part of the same constituents.
