It is estimated that nine out of every ten employees require digital skills but there are not enough employees with the required skills to work in the jobs being created. To this end, the Communications Authority and the Agency Tech.MT has launched ‘Women4IT’ which is intended to develop the digital competence of young women who are at risk of being excluded form the workforce as they do not have enough skills in this digital age.

In this regard, Malta will be benefitting from almost €350,000 in funds from the European Economic Area and Norway so that until 2021, 700 women who do not have digital skills, will be given training to improve their job opportunities. The aim of this project is that at least 100 of these women find a job related to IT.
