Your guide to the jobs of the future

Due to technology’s fast advances, a shift in the sectors seeing highest growth, and economic/environmental factors such as the government’s focus on creating jobs to help tackle climate change*, the labour market is changing at pace. This means that it’s particularly important for young people to understand the range of opportunities and career pathways available and the skills required for these key jobs. 

That’s why we’ve created a handy guide to help identify the jobs of the future that are most relevant to a young persons’ skills, strengths and interests. The guide draws on key information from the World Economic Forum’s ‘The Future of Jobs report’.

To help your learners develop skills across a range of jobs and industries, you can visit our Core transferable skills page for lesson plans.
