Employee Skills Survey

Together with Jobsplus​ and Malta Enterprise the NCFHE has undertaken a research project on skills needs as well as the supply and demand for workers in different sectors of the labour market in Malta. This research formed part of the Erasmus+ project “Promoting the Bologna Process in Malta 2014-2016​​”. 

The objective of this research was to collect solid evidence about the number of employees in different sectors of the Maltese economy and undertake a skills forecast in terms of the number of staff required / decreased in the medium and long-term. Besides that, the survey collected data on recent recruitments, types of vacancies that are hard to fill and the reasons for such situations. It also aimed to collect data on the knowledge, skills and competences and training needs in different sectors of the Maltese economy. 

The data collection has been carried out among a representative sample of employers in Malta during the first quarter of 2016 based on telephone interviews and an online questionnaire. The findings of this research were presented on 20 July 2016. This launch event aimed to collect input from experts in the different economic sector to help in the analysis of the  data collected. The report was completed in October 2017.​
