What do you think the world of work will look like in 2030?

It has been estimated that in every job there will be an increase in the time workers spend focusing on people, solving strategic problems and thinking creatively. Whilst we need to be technologically savvy, there is a need to ensure we prepare ourselves and our students for this increased need for what is being referred to as “future skills” or “21st Century Skills”.

This means our RTOs must consider the shifts required for students and for educators. How ready are you for change? What will your RTO do to contribute? Are you equipped to provide career support and planning for your students?

The VET sector is exploring these issues now. The recent Discussion Paper:

‘Training Product Reform, What is the Case For Change?’

presents a model for Training Product design for the future. This includes a greater focus on skill sets, foundation skills and future skills (emotional intelligence, resilience, flexibility in approach to work) and a proposed training package structure that is less focussed on specific job roles.

We have also just completed a podcast on this topic.
