My name is Justyna Rogers and I am a true EFL/ESL enthusiast.
I established META because I believe that there is a need for an independent mediator between schools and teachers. There is a need for someone to guide new teachers in becoming qualified to teach in Malta and to help teachers, who are already working, get access to free Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops.
The recent changes in ELT regulations have influenced the industry. The fact is that there are fewer and fewer teachers being employed in Malta - the numbers of employed EFL teachers dropped from 2016 to 2017 and are currently the lowest in 8 years. Therefore, the schools struggle to find well-qualified teachers and I believe that creating an independent service - a Supply Teachers Bank - will help the local schools provide good quality service to students and will relieve them from the stress of looking for replacement teachers, while also catering for their employees by designing tailor-made CPD sessions.
By starting META I strongly believe that I can positively influence the industry by providing personal assistance to teachers, both local and from abroad, but most importantly, I am able to help ever so busy Academic Directors in finding well-qualified professionals who deserve equal opportunities, respect and equivalent remuneration. So please contact and join me in this journey in making your schools even better.
