VET Funding

There are different funding schemes Vocational Education and Training (VET) institutions can apply for and these fall under two categories: Decentralised funds or Centralised funds.  Decentralised funds are run by the Maltese National Agency (MT NA) which means that organisations apply directly to us for funding.  Centralised funds are run by the European Commission’s Executive Agency in Brussels but the MT NA is still available to guide and provide information to applicants when applying.


Vocational Education and Training shall be defined as:

Education and training which aims to equip staff and learners with knowledge, knowhow, skills and/or competences required in particular occupations or more broadly on the labour market.

For the purpose of Erasmus+, projects focusing on initial or continuing vocational education and training are eligible under VET actions. VET funding applies to individuals who attained MQF VET Level 1 and above of education. VET funding also applies to courses for staff mobilities, as well as funding for incoming experts.
