Marketing Text Successful examples used in Malta to generate employment, especially for youths between 16-24 years old. By far they are not the only exemples; these ‘practices’ have been reproduced and researched in detail to give a clear picture of how the ‘schemes’ operate.
Description The good practices were discussed in detail in the Focus Group conduct by ITS (SALM Focus Group – November 2013) where a number of stakeholders coming from different social fields: educators, tourism, the National employment agency (ETC), the Ministry for Tourism, the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA), public policy makers, psychologist working with youths and college councillor
Target group Youth 16-24; employment counsellors; public employment services
A social tourism initiative targeting Maltese citizens is considered to be feasible by all stakeholders. Looking at the different target groups, it can be seen that there are indeed persons who do not have the required financial capability to go on holiday. The disability pension stands well below the minimum wage in Malta, making disabled persons some of the poorest in Malta (especially if they live on their own).
Most families with three or more children and senior citizens aged 65 and over cannot pay for an annual holiday of one week abroad. However, all the four target groups would be interested in participating in holiday activities, if they had the possibility.
Area of application Services; tourism; social policy.
