The future of work report will talk you through the convergence of disruptive technologies in the fourth industrial revolution. This change is a result of how automated production and advanced globalization has changed individuals and their interaction with communities, impacting every part of society – including the education and workforce development sectors.
According to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report, by 2020 more than a third of the desired core skillsets of most occupations will be compromised for skills that are not yet considered crucial to that job today. 65% of children attending school today will graduate prepared to perform a function that no longer exists. Another McKinsey & Company study shows that by 2030, 375 million workers are expected to change roles due to automation.
The question that arrives after reading these forecasts is – how should educational institutions and workforce development sectors prepare for the coming fourth industrial revolution?
This paper will answer this question by highlighting the changing nature of work and how societies must embrace new or hybrid learning models to allow individuals and economies to thrive moving forward.
Additionally, this report seeks to further debates on the evolution of learning in the 21st century and how we can break down barriers to transform learning and generate opportunities for everyone in a prospering economy.
