The third annual Skills and Employment Conference is underway, featuring a range of talks, discussions and workshops on how to close the gap between education and work.
Open to students, teachers and employers, this year’s conference is themed around ‘Transitions to Employment’.
The conference kicked off on Monday, with talks on preparing for the future of work, and the future international skills curriculum in Jersey.
Today, there’ll be an employer workshop on transitions to employment, with one for students tomorrow.
All talks will be broadcast on the Skills Jersey YouTube channel, and workshops will be live, so the public can take part.
Lynne Haws, Head of Careers and Higher Education, said: “The link between learners and industry is vital for the prosperity and productivity of Jersey and with the advent of the fourth Industrial revolution this relationship and these transitions into employment will become more important.
“We need to be prepared to meet these challenges and to enable all learners to have the ability to transition into both new and existing roles. This will mean that we all need to understand the relevant pathways into employment.”
