SOS Malta in partnership with aditus foundation participated in a seven months project, ICP: Intercultural Competence Programme - Adapting Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes in the Workplace, co-financed through the European Fund for the Integration of Third Country Nationals.

The project’s main objective is to promote intercultural competence throughout mainstream public service providers and related stakeholders in Malta and Gozo through the development of the first fully comprehensive course in intercultural competence in Malta.

The project involved the development of a fully comprehensive training course through desk research, consultations and focus groups and the production of a course handbook to carry out future courses on intercultural competence.

This course development provided for a lasting resource for Malta for the future roll out of intercultural competence training across all public services, and persons working with Third Country Nationals in other sectors, as well as for the potential integration of this as a core part of any qualification of public sector employees.

The training handbook is designed for trainers wishing to deliver training to employees or service providers  to help them understand what an intercultural competence means and acquire the skills and attitudes necessary to apply this knowledge  in the workplace.
