We all know that a good well-rounded education will provide us all with the best possible start in life, but we also recognise that lifelong learning is a fundamental pillar of our social and economic success.


Over the lifetime of this Plan we will:

  • Review education funding and delivery so resourcing is focused into the right areas with the most positive impact.

  • Ensure attainment and undertake quality assurance benchmarking of education services.

  • Establish apprenticeship training partnerships with employers to reflect the current and future needs of the Island’s economy and contribution to global sustainable development.

  • Deliver improved ongoing support for training, internship, higher education, re-skilling and upskilling initiatives.

  • Implement the Childcare Strategy and any necessary changes to employment law so that parents can access childcare at various stages and balance home and work commitments.

  • Consider the potential role, benefit and remit of a Children’s Commissioner and Child First policy approach across Government.                                          
  • Research the development of niche educational and training campuses based on the Island’s sector strengths.
