In his comments, Governor Scicluna stated, “It’s important that the Central Bank listens to and engages with young people.”

The Principal and CEO of MCAST Professor Joachim James Calleja also stated that “it is truly a pleasure to welcome Professor Edward Scicluna to MCAST. Professor Scicluna has been a Governor of this College when MCAST was set up in 2000. He supports work-based learning and engages MCAST students at the Central bank on a regular basis. It is this direct experience on work places that makes MCAST a special place to learn and to work. Many of our students appreciate the opportunity to work and study at the Central Bank. Engaging apprentices is an investment for employers in the private and the public sectors”.
