Background

The Maltese educational system tends to drill students into focusing too much in passing exams rather than equipping students with tools and skills which are fundamental in the world of work as well as in every day life. 21 Academy believes that it is important that youths get exposed and learn more about what is necessary for their working life as well as their social life. In view of this a course has been created to fill this gap – Tools & Skills Course 4 Youths.

Who should attend ?

The course is aimed at all youths who are 16 years old and upwards including those who are attending 6th form, those who are studying at any educational establishment including MCAST and UoM, those who have a gap year and are working on their A’ levels to keep furthering their studies as well as those who may have decided to venture out into the world of work.

What shall this course cover?

  1. Social Media – the pros and cons
  2. The impact of Climate Change
  3. Artificial Intelligence – a threat or a blessing?
  4. Staying Groomed
  5. Nutrition – you are what you eat
  6. Data Privacy – Your Digital Footprint
  7. Mental Health
  8. How to communicate effectively
  9. An Entrepreneur’s Experience
  10. Understanding employment rights
  11. Etiquette

  13. Public Speaking
  14. Overview of the EU Institutions
  15. How to be Assertive
  16. Basics of Sign Language
  17. Writing your CV
  18. Handling a Job Interview
