We are excited to launch this whitepaper about the future of work and learning.
This first paper highlights the changing nature of work and how societies must embrace new or hybrid learning models to allow individuals and economies to thrive going forward. Without a fundamental transformation in how we think about lifelong learning and skill development, individuals, communities, and whole economies will be left behind.
Preparing for work is not the only purpose of education, but it is nonetheless a topic policymakers, educators, academics, companies, and individuals all have a stake in. Given the dramatic shifts currently taking place as a result of the 4th industrial revolution, we would argue it is one of the biggest questions and opportunities of our time.
Our hope is that this paper will serve as a basis for dialogue and debate on how systems and thinking must shift to ensure individuals are best prepared for the new world of work and the roles various partners have in making this shift possible.
We are forever thankful to the many customers, partners, mentors, friends and experts who constantly push our thinking, set examples, and chart new pathways forward.
