“FELTOM is constantly on the forefront lobbying for a number of issues and is currently exploring policies which tackle accessibility to efficient Visa processes, the introduction for work-study permits and walk-in applications – all of which would give an essential boost to local intake opening up for international students from different markets.”
This was stated by Genevieve Abela, CEO of FELTOM, the Federation of English Language Schools in Malta, at an event launching the 7th ELT Industry Report compiled by Deloitte.
Ms Abela said that FELTOM is very pleased with the on-going collaboration with the various ministries and with MTA in particular, “Although there is still more we can do, we have achieved much and are looking forward with confidence to furthering our relationship and co-operation in the coming months”.
The ELT Industry Report is an important strategic tool that gives a strong portrayal of the state of the ELT sector in Malta to date. It is based on thorough research amongst FELTOM’s 22 member schools offering a clear picture of the situation and serving as an indicator of what is effective and what needs to be improved in the sector.
In her introduction Genevieve Abela explained how, “With circa 8.1% of total tourist expenditure and 10.7% of total guest nights this sector continues to be a very valid contributor to Malta’s economy. As always FELTOM tries to keep one step ahead looking towards the industry’s future in the interest of its members. The international scene in 2016 has not been without strife and, as indicated in these statistics, this has unfortunately had, and will continue to have, a back-lash on the local industry. This is why it is important that Malta is prepared to counter this with diversified, unique, and collaborative measures”.
She insisted that it was necessary to reflect on why, despite marketing initiatives both on the part of schools as well as the MTA, other destinations are registering growth in the sector while Malta sees a minimal increase on arrivals, made even less important given the decrease in 2015 and a substantial decrease in student weeks, “Notwithstanding adversity and a constantly evolving international market this industry remains a success story thanks to our member schools’ commitment. FELTOM believes in all it represents and will always push for constant improvement when possible. It will continue lobbying for more support and recognition that will not only benefit our members but also ensure that Malta’s recognition as a destination continues to grow.”
Representatives from countries around the globe convened in Malta this week for the annual FELTOM (Federation of English Language Teaching Organisation Malta) ELT workshop which this year featured the largest local gathering ever of international agents.
During the week-long event the delegates had the opportunity of meeting up with representatives of local ELT schools and other stakeholders in the industry in a formal and informal setting. The week started with a number of activities highlighting the archipelago’s rich history and the variety of cultural and social events that Malta and Gozo boast of. These activities not only offered entertainment but also a chance to network. The participants were able to savour the great potential Malta offers while meeting up and getting to know the ELT schools in a more relaxed manner.
The international agents, hailing from countries which among others include Belarus, Brazil, Poland, and the Ukraine, were hosted at the exceptional Radisson Blu Resort and Spa Malta Golden Sands.
The FELTOM workshop is an annual event aimed at increasing Malta’s profile as an ELT destination bringing together the industry’s major stakeholders with representatives of the major international markets.
It’s only a few weeks away and once again FELTOM has a jam-packed programme for the schools, agents and service providers who will be joining us in Malta between the 13th and 17th of March 2017.
Once again the FELTOM Malta Workshop will be held at The Radisson BLU Resort and Spa, Malta Golden Sands, one of Malta’s most beautiful 5-star hotels, with a breathtaking view of one of our picturesque beaches, Golden Bay. Those agents who will be arriving during the first half of the day will have the opportunity to enjoy a Guided Tour of the Malta Chamber of Commerce and the Viewing of the Media Show – Malta5D in the afternoon/evening.
The second day consists of a full-day trip to Gozo, Malta’s sister island and a welcome reception at the Malta National Aquarium for all the delegates in the evening.
On the 15th and 16th of March schools, agents and exhibitors will meet each other during the first part of the day and after lunch there will be organised trips to the participating schools so that all the agents attending the workshop will get the opportunity to visit the schools and see for themselves what goes on.
Evening events continue with a bowling networking activity on Wednesday and a final closing reception at the event hotel itself on Thursday evening.
From our side, you can certainly expect lots of posts and pictures from the FELTOM Malta Workshop 2017. If you’re going to be there, we do look forward to seeing you!!
