Malta Pub­lic Trans­port donates free travel to vul­ner­a­ble job seek­ers

Malta Independent - - BUSINESS -

Malta Pub­lic Trans­port last week signed an agree­ment with the Malta As­so­ci­a­tion of Sup­ported Em­ploy­ment un­der the Pos­i­tive Sup­ported Em­ploy­ment Pro­gram of­fer­ing free travel to vul­ner­a­ble job seek­ers.

Through the PSEP pro­gram, vul­ner­a­ble in­di­vid­u­als in the poverty line par­tic­i­pate in train­ing ses­sions that are specif­i­cally de­signed to help them build the nec­es­sary skills to find a job. Malta Pub­lic Trans­port will be of­fer­ing par­tic­i­pants free credit on their tallinja cards in or­der for them to at­tend the train­ing ses­sions and then job in­ter­views.

“We are sup­port­ing this pro­gramme be­cause it en­cour­ages peo­ple to de­velop their skills to be more in­de­pen­dent. We be­lieve that giv­ing a lit­tle help­ing hand to get started can boost their mo­ti­va­tion and ac­tu­ally make a dif­fer­ence,” stated Konrad Pulé the Gen­eral Man­ager of Malta Pub­lic Trans­port.

With sat­is­fac­tion, Marthese Mugli­ette the Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Pos­i­tive Sup­ported Em­ploy­ment Pro­gram main­tained that “we are glad that Malta Pub­lic Trans­port will be work­ing with us to help in our im­por­tant mis­sion.” She added that pub­lic trans­port is the only means of mo­bil­ity for most of these in­di­vid­u­als and such ges­tures will en­able them to in­te­grate bet­ter within so­ci­ety.
