We are pleased to announce that Future Focus Ltd has recently become a new member of the MSPC.

The expertise of Future Focus Ltd lies in its ability to coordinate the necessary number of institutions and qualified personnel required to service a project.  This is due to the fact that Future Focus Ltd has been functioning for over ten years in this business and during this time period, it has grown to become a principal player in the Maltese educational field.   Apart from the dedication of its core asset – its human resources, Future Focus Ltd has developed its own asset base that allows it to provide fully equipped, fully functional classrooms, utilising state of the art presentation and video conferencing technology where required.  It has its own teaching premises, administration offices, mini hostels, contracted accommodation for incoming students and all the required teaching and educational infrastructure.
