Skills mapping to drive workforce development from school-age

Skills mapping to drive workforce development from school-age

We're pleased to announce this latest webinar that will be part of the two-day virtual EdTech summit that will feature inspiring discussions designed for leaders in education. 

Taking place on Tuesday 25th of May, 12:15 GST / UAE, 11:15 AST / Saudi Arabia, as part of the Victorian EdTech Summit. There is a lot of focus on lifelong learning, Yet we currently do not have a systematic approach for assessing the skills that students in schools will need for jobs that may not even exist until they complete Higher Education. Pauline Farrell, Skills 4 the Future, is collaborating with the Victorian Government to map the skills necessary for students to be successful in an uncertain work future.
