XL Project

Back to projects

The President’s Trust was a catalyst in bringing about the XL programme in Malta through its collaboration with the Prince’s Trust in the United Kingdom.  This is a personal development programme aimed at young people in secondary education.

It helps young people, who are having difficulties at school, re-engage with education through a discovery of different ways of learning.  This should allow them to regain momentum in education and develop a sense of achievement.

The XL curriculum covers five areas including personal and social development, life skills, active citizenship, enterprise projects, and preparation for work.  Each student can choose from a variety of units from each module area.

It allows the student to achieve a qualification up to Level 3 of the Malta Qualifications Framework.

Currently seven government schools are participating, and a total of just over one hundred students are following this programme.

This project is being fully sponsored by HSBC bank, Malta.

The President’s Trust is represented on  the steering committee overseeing its implementation.
