All children in Jersey learn and achieve

Long-term perspective

Today’s children will determine Jersey’s future as they become tomorrow’s citizens and education plays a key role in determining how someone spends their adult life. Young people leaving education and training early run a greater risk of struggling to find employment and are more likely to work in insecure and low-paid jobs or experience longer periods of unemployment later in life. 

Medium-term focus: the Government Plan 2020-23

A Government Plan 2020-23 priority is to make Jersey the best place for children and young people to grow up and it makes a commitment to support our children and young people to secure even better outcomes at every stage of their education.

Education plays a key role in determining how you spend your adult life, as a higher level of education often means higher earnings, better health, and a longer life. Upper secondary school qualifications serve as the foundation for higher education and training opportunities, as well as the preparation for direct entry into the labour market.
