Nurturing professional learning communities

Sunday, 3 December 2023, 08:45 Last update: about 4 months ago

On 20-21 October, the ELT Council organised the 12th edition of its international conference for teachers and other stakeholders involved in the English language teaching sector.

This annual event continues to bring together local professionals and educators based in a range of other countries. Its aim is to enhance educators' engagement by means of an enriching opportunity for professional development.

The event forms part of the ELT Council's mission to ensure high standards in the private language teaching sector in Malta. Consolidating the professionalism of the teachers and school leaders working in this sector helps to reinforce Malta's reputation as a high-quality destination for English language learning.


One way in which the ELT Council seeks to do this is through the Inspiring ELT Professional award, which this year was given to Seema Prasad from AM Language School. The large number of nominations she received from her peers recognised her commitment and inspiring work ethic.

Sue Falzon, ELT Council CEO, stated: "It is great to see the industry grow stronger this year. After hosting another successful conference with over 300 participants, we look forward to a bright 2024 for the ELT industry in Malta."

Daniel Xerri, ELT Council chairperson, explained: "The ELT Malta conference has been going strong for the past 12 years because the educators working in this sector appreciate our efforts to help them nurture professional learning communities. These take root in their schools and in the educators' professional lives through interaction and collaboration with their peers, whether based in Malta or elsewhere."
