We have a solution to help set you up for a successful future career.
First we need to get on the same page as there is a lot of discussion about the future of work…with very little actual certainty
What are we hearing?
What do we actually know?
Lots of traditional jobs will be automated
A third of the activities performed in roughly 60% of jobs can be automated
A single job for life won’t exist
No one knows for sure but the popular stat is 5 different careers averaging 17 employers
The education system will change significantly
We don’t know what education will look like but skills such as adaptability and continual learning will become very important
Given I am going to have lots of different careers, how do I pick where I start and make Year 12 subject choices?
