Compétences et choix de vie

The Life Skills and Choices Programme has been created and enhanced using years of experience and is the one compulsory elective in the Advanced Learning Programme. The programme is designed to help students develop the skills they will need to live successful and happy lives once they leave JCG and also to help them to make their choices about what they would like to do post-18. We aim to give students impartial and expert guidance, from many different sources and using a variety of different lectures, workshops and lessons.

We have a team of six experienced tutors, each with their own specialist area e.g. applying to study Medicine, applying to Oxbridge, seeking employment or planning a gap year, who deliver our in-house material. Led by the Head of Sixth Form, the tutors help students to become more aware of their strengths and weaknesses and facilitate research into university courses, institutions, employment both on and off-island, and gap year opportunities. The tutors also deliver information on subjects such as ‘managing your money’ and our Employability Co-ordinator speaks about improving students’ CVs and applying for jobs, either part-time whilst at university or full-time. The Head of Sixth Form also delivers sessions on topics such as the ‘A level Mindset’ and ‘Super-curricular Enrichment’.

We make use of a variety of expertise from outside of the College. We engage a number of speakers from within the Island and the mainland to broaden students’ outlook and improve their life skills.


We tap into the wealth of experience we have in our ex-students by bringing them back from university to talk to current students about their transition from JCG. At the JCG Careers Fair we welcome back ex-JCG students to talk with the Sixth Form students about their jobs and careers.

University Representatives 

Representatives of a number of universities will visit the College to deliver presentations on how students can make the most of the Jersey Higher Education Fair, choose a university and a course or manage the challenges or leaving home and living independently for the first time. They will also give students advice and guidance, one-to-one, on their university application and personal statement. Students receive interview training and will be given mock interviews with subject specialists for their courses, as and where appropriate.

Skills Jersey and Employers

Alongside our Employability Co-ordinator, representatives from Skills Jersey will assist students who are applying for post-A level employment. We also have a variety of companies who come into school to talk to students about careers and employment opportunities. Interview training and mock interviews are provided with employment agency representatives.
