Learning for Tomorrow's World - a Summary of Consultation Responses

Produced by the Children, Young People, Education and Skills
Authored by Education, Sport and Culture and published on 28 Feb 2013
Prepared internally, no external cost


​The consultation for ‘Learning for Tomorrow’s World’ took place between July and December 2011.  In total 159 responses were received, of which 34 were from organisations including independent schools, parent teacher associations, teaching unions and business groups such as the Chamber of Commerce.
The consultation asked 18 questions about aspects of the education system as a guide to help respondents express their views. A majority used this framework but some contributors chose to write open submissions. The quality of written submissions was high, with some contributions of great depth and complexity.
The process for capturing information and using it in this report included analysing the responses and grouping the 3,500 comments together into themes, the most common of which included; openness and transparency, standards and performance and equality of opportunity.

Three public events were held, each centring on a different phase of education. These were:  
  • Early years and primary education
  • Secondary education
  • Post 16 and Higher Education
In total 195 people attended these events and the views of the attendees were recorded.  Three focus groups / workshops were held for the Polish and Portuguese communities. A further workshop was held for a young mothers group run by the Jersey Youth Service.
Student responses were received from Les Quennevais School, Highlands College and Hautlieu School.
