The past two years have acted as a stepping-stone in my role as an Educator. The institute of MLI has exposed us to different modules to broaden our knowledge horizon and grasp a better understanding of the diverse needs that we support daily in the classrooms.  Lectures were all very fruitful and engaging because lecturers taught us how to be more practical, hence, how to retain and utilise our knowledge in practice.

Thank you Mr. Friggieri for being the backbone of the institute. Together with all the team, you have provided me with an enriching journey in my profession.

When I approached some of my friends for recommendations to continue my studies for a top-up degree in inclusive education, they suggested the Malta Leadership Institute.  I began my course in February 2020 with face-to-face classes. A few weeks later COVID-19 pandemic broke and MLI had to conduct our classes online.  I compliment them on a job well done as the shift ran smoothly. 

The lectures were well-structured.  The lecturers were very knowledgeable, patient, understanding and down to earth.  Most of them were LSEs in the past, so who could understand us better?  We were also allowed to ask questions during lectures, which were competently answered.  We could always reach the lecturers via e-mail if we had any questions about an assignment.  The lecturers were helpful and available.  They deserve my heartfelt thanks and gratitude because they were all fantastic. 

When I needed to call the MLI office, I found them to be very responsive and helpful. I would strongly suggest the MLI because they made my journey a pleasure.
