What does the future of work look like – and what does it mean for education?
We have all read headlines about how the world of work is changing – with some of the most dramatic warning of huge upheaval in the jobs market.
We wanted to help educators to take a balanced look at what changes are really taking place - and find out what they mean for their students.
Our latest webinar for LifeSkills investigated the trends behind the headlines. Our expert panel included business leaders, researchers, charity founders and recent graduates alongside a careers leader and assistant headteacher.
Together, they explored how core transferable skills can ‘futureproof’ young people – preparing them for whatever the future holds and giving them the tools to adapt to the jobs of the future.
They also shared practical tips for educators – including how you can use LifeSkills resources to unlock develop your students’ core transferable skills and unlock their potential.
Meet the panellists:
- Kirstie Mackey OBE - Managing Director, Citizenship UK & Europe
- Neil Carberry – CEO of Recruitment and Employment Confederation
- Saeed Atcha MBE - Chief Executive, Youth Leads UK
