The Leonardo da Vinci Programme enables organisations in the vocational education sector to work with partners from across Europe, exchange best practices, and increase their staff’s expertise. The programme funds transnational work placements with the objective of improving the provision of Vocational Education and Training (VET), focusing on innovative organisations and projects to improve the quality of training by developing and transferring good policies, courses, teaching methods, materials and procedures.

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!”

Leonardo da Vinci Scholarship

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’.”

“Over a three week period the student gains valuable practical experience working on live conservation projects. With onsite experience and instruction from the LTM staff the students develop a far greater knowledge and understanding of traditional materials and methods and can also appreciate the lasting contribution they have made to the project.”
