Share this page

Political and officer representatives from Education Services in the Isle of Man and Jersey are meeting with their Guernsey counterparts today to discuss a range of issues as part of the regular Inter-Island meetings.

Isle of Man Education Minister, Hon Graham Creegen MHK and Chief Executive Officer, Professor Ronald Barr, took the opportunity to extend their visit spending Monday visiting Early Years settings, the College of Further Education and the Institute of Health & Social Care Studies.

Jersey's Director of Education, Justin Donovan, flew in this morning for a full day of discussions on issues including the launch of Guernsey's new curriculum, ICT, Further and Higher Education, the implications of public examination reforms in England, design thinking and local language. Guernsey was represented by Deputy Paul Le Pelley, President of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, Deputy Carl Meerveld, Vice-President, Jon Buckland, Chief Secretary and Alan Brown, Director of Education. Jersey's Education Minister, Deputy Rod Bryans, was unfortunately unable to attend owing to other States business.

'It is always useful to meet with colleagues from the other Crown Dependencies to discuss areas of mutual interest,' said Deputy Le Pelley.

'We can learn from each other and share areas of best practice as well as discuss some of the challenges that face education, regardless of which Island we live in.

'There are certain areas such as Higher Education funding and provision where it makes sense to work closely together. I am also interested to hear from the Isle of Man about their efforts trying to revive and enhance the Manx language and whether there is anything we can learn from the Isle of Man experience. It is a really useful visit,' said Deputy Le Pelley.
