According to the Foundation for young Australians’ report, 70% of your children’s future jobs will be radically affected by automation
. And according to Dell, 85% of the jobs that exist in 2030 don’t exist yet
. Let those statistics sink in for a moment.
The world is rapidly changing and evolving, and as a society, we face a problem of our young people not having the skills they need for the future. At the moment, our children are woefully unequipped for this new work order. But with a constantly changing world of work, how can we prepare our children for a productive and successful career?
Although we don’t know what jobs will exist in the future yet, we do know the type of skills your children will need. Digital Creator Skills.
For your child to keep up with the skills of the future, they should be equipped with a wide range digital skills; not just programming. They should have a good understanding of how code works; how computers work and how software is designed to stay competitive in the future workforce, no matter what career they choose to go into.
