Publications and Policies

Below you can find for download, documents which are useful for the Foundation Programme Malta.

Trainee handbooks

The most recent publication of the Foundation Programme Malta Office has been the Foundation Programme Guidebook. This publication gives a very down to earth insight into Foundation training in Malta, with useful tips by the Foundation docdtors themselves. You may download the Guidebook here.

This handbook was modelled on the UK Foundation Programme Rough Guide, but was edited specifically to fit to the local Programme.

The Foundation Programme Malta is the same as the UK Foundation Programme and is affiliated to it. Thus the same Curriculum for Foundation Training is used.

Curriculum resources can be found in the Curriculum section of this site.

Reference Guide

Curriculum delivery is based on a Reference Guide. In 2012, this was updated, and the new document can be found here.


The Foundation Programme Malta is using the electronic version of the portfolio managed by NES SCotland. Instructions on how to enter into the Demo E-portfolio site can be found here.

The Foundation Programme Malta regularly organises training courses for Educational Supervisors and for Assessors of the Foundation Programme. Training Aids may be downloaded here.
