GEM16+ education programme was set up for students who leave compulsory schooling without formal (MATSEC) qualifications giving them a second opportunity of succeeding in an academic route. A core curriculum, consisting of Maltese, English, Maths, Physics or ECDL, prepares students to sit for the SEC examinations. These academic subjects are complimented with P.E. and PSD to form a holistic programme. Various activities are organised to instill self confidence and enrich their experiences.
