Apprenticeship and Internship Scheme Opportunities for Businesses

GRTU held an information session regarding the newly re-launched Apprenticeship and Internship Scheme Opportunities in collaboration with MCAST. This session generated interest throughout a variety of sectors and members as it provides opportunities to tap into the service of new entrants into the labour market through work-based learning. The new scheme under the management of MCAST takes the form of quality apprenticeships and internships which are based on agreed learning pathways to be of value to the students as well as the businesses hosting them.

Apprenticeships:

  • MQF Level 3 and 4 (comparable with O-level and A-level standard in terms of vocational training)
  • Allowance by employer to be given to student undergoing apprenticeship of Eur50.00 per week
  • Applicable tax credits of between Eur700 and Eur1200
  • Student undergoing apprenticeship will be working around 16 hours a week during school months and around 40 hours a week during holiday months

Internships:

  • MQF Level 5 and 6 (comparable with University Diploma or University Degree in terms of vocational training)
  • No payment obligation applies
  • Agreed set number of hours can span over 1 month up to 9 months

This applies to various vocational training sectors and your business can benefit directly by the services of apprentice/intern as well as by contributing to a more labour market-oriented workforce in the years to come. For further assistance and support please contact GRTU on 21232881/3or by email.
