Education in the community

Working with Jersey’s future generation

We remain committed to supporting Jersey’s young people and encouraging future careers in aviation and maritime roles.

Through our fun and educational visits to the airport and harbours, as well as our safety awareness programmes, we engaged with more than 4,000 young people in 2019.

Jersey Coastguard

In 2019, Jersey Coastguard engaged with almost 10,000 local primary and secondary school pupils with our sea and beach safety presentations.

Being an island with such a diverse and unique coastline, our school education programme aims to give the best possible advice to school children to help keep them safe, while carrying out different activities available on Jersey’s beaches, coast and at sea. While the information we provide is predominantly aimed at children, it also applies to anyone heading to the coast and is delivered in a fun and interactive way.

Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting Service (ARFFS)

Crew members from across ARFFS facilitate regular onsite visits from local schools, nurseries, youth and charity associations, including Jersey Child Care Trust, Sea, Air and Fire cadets and Princes Trust.

Over and above a fun and informative ‘behind the scenes’ look at airport life, it also provides an opportunity to promote fire awareness and safety issues to this young audience.

For Early Years and Key Stage One groups, Airport visits include provision of a classroom pack, which children can use for learning-by-play back in a school or home setting.
