This strategy sets out our commitment to a high performing education system, lifelong learning and training to meet the Island’s needs and ensures that we benefit to the greatest extent from the economic recovery. It provides strategic direction for the work of States departments, training providers and the Skills Board, the employer-led body that advises the Skills Executive.
Working together as Skills Jersey we have developed a comprehensive approach that complements the Enterprise Action Plan, the Economic Growth and Diversification Strategy and the Back-To-Work initiatives that have been successful in helping many people find jobs in a challenging economic environment. This strategy brings together long, medium and short term objectives that will ensure our Island is well-placed to meet the requirements of current and emerging labour markets.
As the three Ministers most closely involved with these challenges we know that skills development is essentially about people; helping them to gain meaningful employment, achieve their career goals and improve their lives. This strategy is designed to support their development and help Islanders achieve their aspirations.
