Skills Jersey 2018

Posted: Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Skills Jersey is a careers fair exhibition put on each year by the States of Jersey so that different industries can showcase what they do to students from the Island schools.

There is an increased focus and drive by The Jersey Royal Company to present agriculture as an attractive career option to locals.

Once a mainstay industry in the Island, agriculture now falls behind the finance sector, and for a number of years farmers have arguably not done enough to promote themselves as a genuine career option to school leavers.

Students from all of the Island schools are invited to attend.

The students have a chance to ask questions, and to learn a bit about the different machinery used for each operation.
