The Future of Work: Skills for a changing world

4 May 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Remember that time when you were unafraid to blow out candles on cakes, battled peak-hour traffic and crowded in small unventilated spaces?

That time has gone.

The way we live has changed along with changing workforce demands looking for new skills and knowledge.

This time of rapid change begs some pressing questions for our Island state and beyond. In the face of labour shortages and a technological boom, how can we retain and attract workers in a sustainable way?  What should we be doing to prepare the education and training needs to meet future workforce demands?  What does all this mean for our broader community and the expectations on youth, particularly those in regional communities?

Join our expert panel online at 5pm on Wednesday 4 May to discuss this and more.
