Development of the island's Education Strategy, which has been a key priority for the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture for some time, extends to the delivery of education across all settings and age ranges. It provides an ambitious and aspirational framework for continuous improvement which will help deliver a high-quality education for all learners in Guernsey and Alderney.
A collaborative approach, working with a wide-range of stakeholders including teachers and school-bases staff, students, the Committee and education leaders, is essential to secure successful progress.
A group of more than 20 aspiring education leaders, representing many of the States' maintained schools and The Guernsey Institute, are working together to support the development and visibility of the Education Strategy as it moves from intent to implementation.
This collaborative approach, developing the strategy with school-based staff who act as Education Strategy champions in their settings, ensures that there is appropriate input, challenge and support from staff working on the frontline of educational delivery and will ensure that the Education Strategy has a tangible impact in their own schools and settings.
The Education Strategy Network has been established to ensure ongoing feedback from across the sector continues to inform the evolution of the strategy. Here are some members providing their views on the work.
As part of wider engagement on the Strategy, senior educationalists have attended meetings of the Youth Forum to speak with young people about priority areas to receive feedback on the commitments. In the videos below young people speak about what the Education Strategy means to them.
