The Future Of Work
Explore Our Ever-Changing Future Of Work
About The Program
In the media, there is a constant buzz about job automation and robots taking over our roles in the future workforce, creating a narrative of fear and uncertainty.
To counter this, our Future Of Work program aims to shift this narrative by inspiring students about the exciting opportunities awaiting them in the future job market. By delving into the 100 Jobs Of The Future, students will explore potential roles projected to emerge in the next 20-50 years.
These roles range from an off-world habitat designer to a robot ethicist, showing the wide array of possibilities that lay ahead. Through interactive workshops and hands-on activities, students will not only gain a glimpse into their potential future careers but also develop crucial skills to thrive in an ever-evolving job landscape.
Through defining job descriptions, crafting resumes, and connecting these roles to current jobs, participants will debunk the myths surrounding the future of work. By gaining a deeper understanding of the evolving job market landscape and the skills in demand, individuals can navigate their career paths with confidence and adaptability. Embracing continuous learning, networking, and staying abreast of industry trends are key components in staying competitive in the ever-changing job market.
This program has been designed for High School students and is recommended specifically for Grade 9-12 students.
This program can be adapted in length to run for one hour, two hours, or three hours in length.
Longer programs allow students to further develop their skills and dive deeper into the program content. Shorter programs are great as a taster experience for students touching lightly on the key topics.
