A Partnership in Co-operative Training

The Co-operative College and Koperattivi Malta are two values-based education institutions with a shared history of supporting co-ops and co-operators to innovate, grow and put their values into action.

To further strengthen that partnership, our two organisations signed an memorandum of understanding detailing specific areas of work on which we plan to collaborate. These include a commitment to create a global co-operative college network (alongside other partners) to share global best practice, the development of co-operative study tours and explore the potential of setting up dual accreditation for further and higher education teaching programmes.

The Koperattivi Malta is where education meets empowerment – together, we are shaping a future where cooperative principles flourish, benefitting both cooperative members and the broader community.
