A number of students enrolled in various accredited courses offered by Learning Works were lately presented with their certificate in a scaled-down graduation ceremony held at this educational institution’s training hub in Qormi. Learning Works is accredited as a Further and Higher Education Institution by the National Commission for Further and Higher Education.
Over a hundred students who in the past months successfully completed courses in healthcare, advanced healthcare, sport psychology and hospitality, food and beverage and Maltese language and culture for foreigners were presented with their certificate by the institution’s chief executive and principal Charlo Bonnici. Due to the current situation related to Covid-19 students were split into small groups and staggered over a whole afternoon.
Learning Works has been taking all the necessary precautions to safeguard the health and safety of its students, lecturers, and employees since the first cases were registered in Malta. It has been offering most of its courses online and limiting the number of students in class where such sessions are held. Furthermore, all other measures related to sanitizing, wearing of masks and social distancing have been taken all along.
Learning Works is currently gearing up for a number of courses which are about to start in the coming weeks including courses in health care, advanced healthcare, disability, mental health, leadership and management, diversity management, sports nutrition and Maltese and English for foreigners. These courses will be offered either in the classroom or online. For some of the courses which normally attract a substantial number of applicants, Learning Works will also be offering the possibility for students to either follow the lecture in the classroom or online. It has invested in equipment to enable this to happen in the most effective way.
In the coming months Learning Works will also be offering new courses in dementia care as well as childcare. It will also be offering an innovative programme aimed at addressing the gender gap that exists at the highest levels of management.
Whilst the school was closed between March and June Learning Works embarked on a new project through which a number of facilities were added to the existing ones. Two new lecture rooms, a new common room for students and new administration offices and facilities for staff are now being used.
