Charity begins at home for the Jersey International Business School. We are pleased to donate £1 per enrolment on any short course, programme or professional qualification to Centre Point Trust.
Centre Point Trust provides the invaluable day-care service many parents need to enable them to work without compromising on the upbringing of their children. All too frequently, youth crime and delinquency grows from a lack of family support; Centre Point Trust offers a fun, caring environment for learning and play that helps countless parents maintain the delicate balancing-act between their careers and their responsibilities to their families.
