The job market is changing rapidly as a result of the fourth industrial revolution. We are now educating young people for jobs that do not exist, and once in employment, the average person will have multiple careers during their working life. We want everyone to able to develop their skills and behaviours continuously, so they can adapt to technological change and thrive.
Our learning programmes are designed to equip people of all ages with the capabilities to make the most of the digital world.
We need to support people to learn throughout life so they can reach their full potential and make the most of the dynamic, digital world.
We need to support employers to build the workforce they require to bridge the emerging and widening digital skills gap.
We need an inclusive approach to recruitment to minimise bias in digital technology design.
