Malta FA kicks off Sports Leadership and Management courses

Young people interested in pursuing a job in sports now have the chance to tap into these opportunities thanks to the Skills4Sports project.

As one of the main partners of this programme, the Malta Football Association, through its Football Social Responsibility (FSR) department, will be hosting a series of free courses with the first one, focusing on Sports Leadership and Management, commencing in January.

Peter Busuttil, the Head of the Malta FA’s FSR department who co-ordinates the Skills4Sports project said: “Sports is a massive industry covering a wide spectrum of professions and jobs beyond the field of play or the competitive arena.

“The main objective of Skills4Sports is to address the skills gap in the sports sector and facilitate access to sports-related jobs for these young people. All courses will be offered free of charge.”

Interested candidates can apply for the first Sports Leadership and Management module by  sending an email to fsr@mfa.com.mt (write Skills4Sports in the subject line).

The courses will be conducted by experts and prominent personalities with a wealth of experience in sports-related jobs, including Skills4Sports Malta ambassadors, former Malta coach Ray Farrugia, and Hibernians FC and Malta Women’s Team player Martina Borg.

The Skills4Sports curriculum was launched last week during a session at MCAST.
