18 - What happens if my child cannot communicate in Maltese or English?

Your child will be admitted to an induction course if it is ascertained that the child will not be able to cope in a mainstream classroom. A simple language assessment will be carried out and the decision will be based upon the outcome of this assessment.

The induction programme usually lasts one scholastic year and prepares the student to feel confident and be able to communicate in both English and Maltese. 

The programme for the induction is a basic primary school curriculum, including Mathematics, Art, Crafts and of course Maltese and English.  The emphasis is on learning these two languages.​
