The MUT wrote to the Permanent Secretary at the Ministry for Education and Employment as it is very concerned about the lack of Youth Workers employed in Colleges. In fact, there are only 5 Youth Workers employed across all state schools in Malta and Gozo. In view of this, the MUT enquired when was the Call for Applications for Youth Workers in State Colleges issued and when a new call for applications is expected. Also, given the circumstances and the dire need for more Youth Workers, the MUT called for the recruitment process to be expedited.
In reply, the Permanent Secretary stated that he will be checking details and get back.
