Minister for Education and Employment, Dr Owen Bonnici has today visited the Young Adults Education Resource Centre in Wardija.

This Resource Centre caters for 16 year old students with Individual Educational Needs who have completed their secondary education.  The school serves as a way to provide students with the right tools to further their education, enhance their development skills and prepare them for a better life and employment.


"As a Government, we want to provide everyone with the opportunity to recognise their abilities and work on strengthening them," said Dr Bonnici during his visit. "We want to make sure that every student is included and encouraged to maximise their potential. Our aim is to work together to assure the highest possible standard of learning, especially by helping our students achieve results, whilst encouraging them to further their education," he continued.

The school's programme focuses on the student's personal development, including core skills, social competencies and inter-personal skills, and prepares the students in a vocational manner by strengthening their employability skills, exploring vocations, and providing support services.

Minister Bonnici also held a meeting with the head of school, staff and educators at the Maria Regina College Young Adults Education Resource Centre.
