Digital Skills Bootcamp 2021 - eSkills Malta Foundation

Database

Digital Skills Bootcamp 2021 is this year's edition of e-Skills Malta Foundation's annual campaign, which sees the foundation contacting a wide range of training providers to participate in the delivery of education sessions, open to all, on the topic of coding, software, mobile applications and web development, and advanced digital skills. In this context, the Bootcamp is part of the foundation's mandate and commitment to increasing the number of people in Malta, who possess more advanced digital skills. 

The Digital Skills Bootcamp initiative aims to improve access to, and availability of, coding and coding-related upskilling activities. Another goal of the initiative is to improve the talent pool of people with advanced digital skills, develop a larger pool of persons that are better equipped for their future education or employment or to increase their quality of digital life through the use of coding, and educate and raise awareness of the importance of coding and digital skills in a career context. Each year, training providers join the e-Skills Malta Foundation through the Digital Skills Bootcamp, to offer coding and advanced digital skills education sessions to various target audiences.
