MTCP & MTA E-learning Training Scheme

Empowering the Maltese Tourism Workforce Through E-learning

E-learning training scheme by the Ministry for Tourism and Consumer Protection, in collaboration with the Malta Tourism Authority. 


The Ministry for Tourism and Consumer Protection (MTCP), in collaboration with the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA), has launched a wide-reaching e-learning training scheme for the tourism industry. The scheme is a one-year project. Whilst tourism is on hold, this incentive aims at making the best use of employee and employer resources in these challenging times and empower the workforce to come back stronger and better.

The Institute of Tourism Studies will be offering a variety of programmes. A list, together with the application may be found in the links here-under.
The MTA will pay for the training courses offered by this scheme and will be free of charge to the applicants. 

Individuals may apply for ONE accredited Award or up to THREE non-accredited CPD. 

The programmes are subject to terms and conditions, which one may find on the following link.

  • Individuals who are currently employed within the tourism and hospitality industry.
    These individuals are to upload an EMPLOYMENT letter within the same application

    Student applicants have to be full time registered students. Therefore, such applicants have to provide evidence that they are currently registered as full time students with a local or foreign training institution.
