Far­sons sup­ports Ca­reer Ex­po­sure Ex­pe­ri­ence

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

As part of its Ca­reers in Man­u­fac­tur­ing cam­paign, the Malta Cham­ber’s Man­u­fac­tur­ing Ex­ec­u­tive Board with the sup­port of Malta En­ter­prise and the Ed­u­ca­tion Psy­cho-So­cial Ser­vices (EPSS) sec­tion within the Min­istry for Ed­u­ca­tion and Em­ploy­ment, col­lab­o­rated to or­gan­ise a week-long, Ca­reer Ex­po­sure Ex­pe­ri­ence for Form 4 stu­dents. As part of the com­pany’s com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing its part­ners and stu­dents in of­fer­ing de­vel­op­men­tal ex­pe­ri­ences, Far­sons Group hosted two stu­dents from Gozo.

Dur­ing this week, the stu­dents have been of­fered the op­por­tu­nity to col­lab­o­rate with – and ex­pe­ri­ence – daily work­ing life across the dif­fer­ent op­er­a­tional de­part­ments, en­abling them to ac­quire an un­der­stand­ing of what it would be like to be part of the man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor. More specif­i­cally, the com­pany pro­vided the stu­dents with an op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the dif­fer­ent jobs in the in­dus­try, help­ing them to­wards their fu­ture ca­reers. Through our par­tic­i­pa­tion in such ini­tia­tives, Far­sons hopes to pro­mote the man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try to which, with time, it is be­com­ing in­creas­ingly more chal­leng­ing to at­tract tal­ent. which, over time, is find­ing it in­creas­ingly chal­leng­ing to at­tract tal­ent.

Ms Mariella Galea, L & D Learn­ing and De­vel­op­ment and Per­for­mance Man­ager, said: “The stu­dents were keen about their ex­pe­ri­ence with the com­pany. They were amazed at the size and growth of it and were im­pressed to see prod­ucts that they com­monly see on shop shelves ac­tu­ally be­ing pro­duced. We sin­cerely be­lieve that work ex­pe­ri­ence is ex­tremely ben­e­fi­cial to young stu­dents and serves as an in­spi­ra­tion for their fu­ture ca­reers.”
