Adopt and Train

Over the years LTM has developed a good relationship with Heritage Malta and the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST). We have hosted the Leonardo da Vinci Scholarship over a number of years, allowing students from Malta to develop practical skills on live conservation projects, cementing a friendship based on the preservation of the built heritage. Partly as a result, LTM Group have made it their business to develop a Maltese Division that can adopt and train Maltese students to create the future generation of skilled Mastri.

The Leonardo da Vinci programme is part of the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme aimed to build a skilled workforce across Europe. Leonardo funds transnational work placements with the objective of improving the provision of Vocational Education and Training (VET) as well as any organisation active in this field.

LTM Malta was therefore established as a separate division within LTM Group to further develop this cross-fertilisation of ideas and practices. LTM Malta adopts our tried and tested business model, by employing indigenous resources where possible and implementing quality control measures and continuous training to ensure future growth. The objective is to provide a professional restoration company that carries out quality work using trained operatives.

‘An Unforgettable Experience’

“I want to thank all the Laing Traditional Masonry teams for the unforgettable experience and skills that I have gained working with your company over the last year. This is truly a company I want to be part of either in the UK or in Malta. Thanks a lot!”

Josef Sant - Maltese Student on the Leonardo da Vinci Scholarship and employee of Laing Traditional Masonry Ltd.

LTM have hosted the Leonardo da Vinci Scholarship for the past 4 years. During this period we have trained about 20 Maltese students in the LTM ethos... once they are finished they become master repairs ‘mastri’.”
