The Regional Australia Institute, in partnership with the nbn have released the report ‘The Future of Work – Setting Kids up for Success’ to help set the future for kids in a fast-changing work environment.
The Regional Australia Institute’s ‘The Future of Work – Setting Kids up for Success’ report reveals that to remain competitive in the 2030 job market, one in two Australians will need skills in programming and software development, as well as an ability to build digital technology.
The report identifies three key points:
- The in-demand jobs will be mixing high tech, personal contact and care activities;
- Our kids will need a mix of both nerdy digital and soft personal skills for success in the 2030 job market; and
- Jobs of the future will be flexible, entrepreneurial and dynamic.
Based on these findings, the Future of Work Toolkit focuses on providing practical insights and activities that build both ‘hard’ tech skills and ‘soft’ people, creativity and entrepreneurial capabilities.
