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, ECDL or Physics or Biology, 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.
