Career Learning and Development: A Framework for Schools

The Career Guidance Section within the National School Support Services and the Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes have worked together to develop the framework Career Learning and Development: A Frameworks for Schools. This will serve as a tool for guidance teachers, career advisors, Personal, Social and Career Development teachers and others involved in the planning, design, delivery and evaluation of career education and career guidance in our schools. 

The framework has been published with the support of European funds administered by Euroguidance Malta Centre and can be accessed on

My Journey – Meetings with Career Advisors

All Year 8 students in our Middle Schools are currently being prepared for their choice of option subjects which is part of the My Journey educational route whereby students can choose academic, vocational or applied subjects depending on their abilities, interests and future aspirations. This exercise, in practice, includes individual and classroom career guidance interventions with students and online talks with parents to help students make an informed choice. Besides this, each college is targeting two days (as indicated below) whereby parents can discuss their son’s/daughter’s option choice with the career guidance teams.

For further information one can call the respective college and speak to the Career Advisor.
