EDUCATIONAL PILLARS

Financial Capability

Financial Literacy is not only about the ability to understand how money works in the world but how to manage it. This is the set of skills and knowledge that allows you to make informed and effective decisions when faced with how best to utilise your financial resources that ensure long-term financial wellness.

Work Readiness & Learnability

Employability is the notion of bridging the gap between the school desk and the world of work. This includes specific work-related skills that are crucial for one to be successful as an entry-level employee as well as later on in life. Through partnerships with industry and our diverse team of volunteers, JAYE programmes connect the dots between what is taught in the classroom and the relevance to the working world.

Entrepreneurship

We define entrepreneurship as turning ideas into action through innovation, research, risk-taking, planning and perseverance. These attributes are essential to successfully identify and seize opportunities; personally, in the community and at work whilst honing inherent resilience.
