The Migrant Learners’ Unit organised a Peer Learning Activity (PLA) in collaboration with the European Federation of Education Employers (EFEE).  The theme chosen for the PLA was “Promoting civic education, intercultural dialogue and democratic citizenship, as well as other relevant competences to facilitate migrants’ integration in the educational and socio-economic environment of the host countries”.

The PLA was held at Maria Regina College, Mellieħa Primary School, on 19th May 2016.

The discussion focused on the integration of migrants in the host countries through education and intercultural dialogue.

  Fifteen delegates from different European countries together with several local stakeholders shared their experiences and best practices. Local stakeholders included Directors and Assistant Directors of Education, Education Officers, College Principals, members of SMTs and teachers from Primary and Secondary schools together with representatives from the University of Malta and other Higher Education institutions, parents, NGO’s and other migrant associations. The Minister of Education, Hon. Evarist Bartolo, also participated in the activity.
