Students in a real estate training course left without the promised refund



Students who completed the Real Estate Training Awards course offered by Jobs Plus last November are still waiting for the 75% refund promised by the scheme six months later.

Some students who contacted Malta Independent expressed dissatisfaction with the situation, saying they were still waiting for a 75% refund of the € 750 paid to pursue the course they applied for through TCTC.

From August to November last year, it took about two months to complete the course.

The courses required for realtors to obtain a license were advertised under the Job Plus Initiative “Training Pay” scheme.

When I asked the Training Pays department in JobPlus for a refund in February last year, I was told that the student could not process the refund request for the time being.

“However, please note that for the time being, we will not be able to process TPS applications for reasons beyond Jobsplus.”

This course is advertised on the website of the Malta Developers Association as a collaboration between it and the Tourism Institute.

The Malta Independent contacted both organizations for clarification.

In response, MDA stated in its agreement with ITS that payment management is not part of the transaction.

“Based on our expertise and customer base in this area, MDA has signed a contract with ITS and is involved in the general management, marketing and booking of this training course, which is offered not only to real estate professionals but also to real estate professionals. I am interested in working in this area, but the refund / grant process was one of the aspects controlled by other authorities rather than the MDA. “

Meanwhile, ITS said, “Prompt procedures are currently underway to pay students who attend the Real Estate Training Awards course.”

The newsroom has also been contacted by email TCTC, Jobplus, and its Training Pays scheme department, but so far no reply.
