About the consultation
The first phase of a public consultation about Jersey’s education system has been launched.
The consultation paper, 'Learning for Tomorrow’s World: The Future of Education in Jersey', aims to inform Islanders about the current system and also to find out what you think about its strengths and weaknesses. You can download a copy of the consultation paper below.
The paper looks at all aspects of the current system – from nursery education to adult learning – and asks you to comment over the next 3 months on what, if anything, you think should change in future.
Depending on the feedback we receive, the next step will be a series of green and white papers bringing forward proposals on specific issues.
