Event description:

The recent ‘New Work Smarts’ report by the Foundation for Young Australians has found a third of young people are unemployed or underemployed. Of those seeking to improve their career prospects, 60% are studying for jobs that will be obsolete in 30 years time. Rapidly evolving technologies are shifting the way we work and the types of jobs available. In response, we need to equip youth with the right skills, information and opportunities to succeed in the future workplace. The Future of Youth Skills and Employment conference brings together the key government, community and education stakeholders responsible for supporting the next generation of Australians into meaningful and sustainable work in our changing economy. Attend and learn strategies for: Embracing the future of automation and the changing workplace Strengthening youth support and access to emerging opportunities Developing new pathways for vulnerable or disengaged youth Driving education in entrepreneurship and transferrable skill-sets Fostering outcomes-focused partnerships between industry, education and community Who will attend?
