• Do the jobs of the future currently not exist?

    Hello Everyone,

    According to research from the World Economic Forum, 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that don’t yet exist.

    With the employment landscape evolving, the ability to prepare young people for the jobs of the future is more important than ever.

    We are on the cusp of a Fourth Industrial Revolution with technology such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, robotics, nanotechnology and 3D printing evolving rapidly. While these new technologies provide great potential in terms of new job creation, they also threaten existing jobs. Technology will change the skill sets required in both old and new occupations.

    It would be fantastic to hear your thoughts on this topic:
    · Do you feel that schools/colleges/ universities are adequately equipping young people with skills for the future?
    · What key skills do you feel young people need for the future?
    · How are you training young people within your business, to future proof their skill set?

    Look forward to hearing from you!
