“The Maltese Government wishes to encourage more Maltese, especially young graduates to start a working experience in the European Institutiions.” This was declared by the Parliamentary Secretary for the EU Presidency 2017 and EU funds Dr. Ian Borg when he addressed the participants taking part in the training courses being organised for this purpose.
The aim of these courses is to better prepare potential candidates applying for the position of Maltese translators within these European Institutions.
The Parliamentary Secretary said that his secretariat took this initiative together with the Centre for Development, Reserach and Training following the unsatisfactory results obtained by Maltese students in previous calls for these positions.
He added that out of the niniety applicants, only five managed to pass this test in the last call. This training will assist these students achieve better results.
Dr. Borg stated that the main aim behind this idea is to fill up the majority of the fourty vacancies availble right now for translators. He said that if these posts are not filled by Malltese citizens, this will be another lost opportunity for individuals who aspire to start a working experience with the European Institutions.
“The position of a translator with the European Institutions will pave the way for better possibilities of a longer and more successful opportunites in Brussels.”
Dr. Borg pointed out that if we increase the amount of Maltese translators within the European Institutions, the Maltese Language will be strengthened even at European level.
Finally, Dr. Borg thanked the EU secretariat and the representation of the European Commission in Malta for their collaboration so as to ensure the desired success of this initiative.
