PM inaugurates 'Job Bridge'

Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi this morning inaugurated a new tailor-made training programme for persons with special needs.

He said its purpose is to help integrate them in the employment sector.

He also announced that the government is planning to open two new resource centres for persons with disability - in Hamrun and in Paola.

The new programme called Job Bridge, is administered by the Employment and Training Corporation and aims to give specialised training to its clients, making it easier for them to find a job.

Dr Gonzi said the government has been investing heavily in the concept of integration and just 0.3% of persons with disabilities attended specialised schools. The rest were integrated in mainstream education.
