Victoria College Welcomes New Foundation Partner, Deloitte.
Victoria College is excited to announce Deloitte as our newest Foundation Partner. Deloitte is a leading global provider of audit and assurance, consulting, risk advisory, and tax services with offices in the Channel Islands and Gibraltar.
Deloitte in Jersey will work directly with students across all year groups, giving them invaluable insight into the finance and professional services sector as they explore their future education and various career pathways. The relationship with Deloitte will enable Victoria College to widen access to its world class education through bursary provision, making outstanding teaching and a broad range of co-curricular activities accessible to students from all backgrounds. Victoria College and its Foundation have ambitious aims to increase the number of bursaries available to students; every boy, regardless of their financial background, deserves to thrive, which is why Foundation Partners are so important to our College. Alongside our other valued Foundation Partners, Deloitte will gain exclusive access to our outstanding careers department and its array of activities including interview workshops, CV workshops with the Sixth Form students, our ‘lunch and learn’ programme, work experience opportunities and much more.
Headteacher, Dr Gareth Hughes commented, ‘I am delighted to welcome Deloitte as our newest Foundation Partner. Strong working relationships with Island businesses and charities is a key goal within our 2023-28 Strategic Plan, as is a focus on increasing inclusivity in our community. By working with Deloitte together we can support these goals and provide a fantastic source of career advice for our students.’
Deloitte’s Chief Operating Officer, Islands, Siobhan Durcan said, ‘We are very proud to support Victoria College Foundation. We have worked with Victoria College for a number of years and have employed a number of alumni directly from school into our school leavers scheme and as graduates. The Foundation Partnership is a further strengthening of the bonds with the school. The investment in local schools to support the students’ transition from school to employment or university and provide them with the wider skills and insight is something we are very passionate about.’
Victoria College is proud to be supported by Deloitte among its longstanding Foundation Partners, Saltgate, Rathbones and Quilter Cheviot. We look forward to working with them on a programme of activity that will enrich not only our existing students’ education but will ensure that our doors remain open to every aspiring young mind. Partners have an opportunity to engage in a wide range of school activities and tailored partnership programmes can be put together on request.
