Guernsey’s Institute of Directors February breakfast event will welcome Jacki Hughes, the Executive Principal of the Guernsey Institute, to update guests on the transformation of post-16 education.
Ms Hughes will detail the progress of plans to bring the College of Further Education, the GTA University Centre and the Institute of Health & Social Care Studies under one roof and share her team’s ambitions to support local businesses and meet the skills needs of the future.
Demographic changes globally are requiring that people work longer before retiring and there is an pressing need to focus on a skills strategy that recognises and mitigates against this.
The event will explore how the private sector can work with local education leaders to ensure they are delivering courses that not meet the needs of businesses today, but are also relevant for the future workforce.
Wendy Dorey, Chair of the IoD Guernsey Branch, said: “We are excited to hear from Jacki about the role the Institute can play in upskilling Guernsey’s workforce and facilitating wider economic participation.
“This event will provide valuable insights for business leaders and decision-makers as they navigate the constantly evolving recruitment and skills landscape.”
The event, sponsored by Butterfield, will take place at the OGH in the Colborne Room on 15 February 2023, from 07:45 – 09:00.
