Course outline Prices & course dates


At Alpha School we offer job shadowing placements in one or more of the following departments: Academic, Administration and Accommodation / Welfare. We also organise job shadowing for other schools (secondary and primary) and educational institutions in Malta, subject to a limited availabilty due to  holidays and examination periods. Please contact us in advance for further information. 

Job shadowing describes a type of work experience where participants learn about an occupational area of interest by following a competent worker closely in their day-to-day tasks. Participants of this work-based course basically act as a shadow to a number of key workers across a few organisations, learning the daily practices of the company as well as improving their English skills in real-life situations along the way. 

Alpha School can also offer formal English lessons to people involved in the Job Shadowing placement if they wish to immerse themselves further in their language development.

Please send an up to date CV with your application.
