FUTURE READY SKILLS

How can we shape an education for every student that engages them deeply in their learning and prepares them for the world beyond school?

Why Teach Future Ready Skills?

It is an undeniable argument that we need to prepare our students for a workforce that looks very different from the one of today. Our students will need a suite of skills that are transferable and usable across a range of contexts and professions.

The next step for teachers is to adequately prepare our students to be adaptable for an ever-changing workforce. Pedagogical approaches that explicitly teach our students to be critical, creative and resilient learners presents challenges for the teaching profession in an ever-changing educational landscape.

Nonetheless, the teaching profession has a moral obligation to provide learning experiences for our students to be engaged and passionate life-long learners. This can be achieved by providing them with opportunities to co-create learning with the real-world, and to be socially aware, resilient and flexible learners.

The explicit teaching of future ready skills will develop the required entrepreneurial skills for the flexible workplaces of tomorrow and a commitment to be active local and global citizens.
