The MFSA Education Consultative Council (ECC)


The MFSA is mindful that the Maltese Financial Services Sector is developing in a manner that it will require employees with enhanced skills beyond academic training. For this reason it has set up an Education Consultative Council which will be referred to as ‘the ECC’ or ‘the Council’.


Membership in the ECC is open to training providers specialising in vocational development that is directly relevant to the financial services sector. Membership is also open to national agencies or bodies involved in the training and guidance of prospective employees in the sector. Besides the MFSA, membership of the Council comprises the:
