Sign the Petition to

The Members of the States of Jersey

We are calling for the States of Jersey to Act on a four point action plan for tertiary education.

We are calling for swift action to:

1. Increase the level of funding into higher education to OECD levels
2. Secure agreement from the UK government that Jersey students will pay no more for a UK course than a UK, EU, 'qualifying overseas territory' or Swiss student
3. Raise the means-testing thresholds within the current grant system to reflect RPI since 2001
4. Establish a cheap, non means-tested, government-backed student loan scheme on favourable terms like the one that is available to students in the UK

Signed,

Titia Rebindaine

We are urging you to act urgently in addressing the ability of the island to provide a sophisticated and highly skilled local work force. This ability, and as a result the island's future competiveness, is threatened by a lack of investment and short-comings in a number of areas related to the provision of tertiary education.
