Opportunities in education and talent innovation

Our world is changing – fast. New technologies with the power to disrupt entire industries emerge almost every day. To keep up with the world of tomorrow, we must start building the workforce of the future today. This will require innovations in talent, skills, education and lifelong learning.

We must learn at the pace of progress, constantly honing and developing new skills. Radical innovation in education is the only way forward. Not just to give our children the tools they need to succeed in the future, but also to help our existing workforce redirect their talents.

FACTS & FIGURES


New Skills Wanted

Approximately 65% of children starting school today will hold jobs that don’t exist yet. Evidently, education will change drastically.

Education in the Digital Age

By 2024, jobs and roles in the education sector requiring digital skills will grow by 12%. Staying relevant demands a digital skill set.

Teacher shortage

About 263 million children and youth worldwide do not attend school. This includes 25 million children of primary school age who will probably never set foot in a classroom.

E-learning

Projections show that the market size of the e-learning market worldwide is forecast to surpass 243 billion U.S. dollars by 2022. In 2014 it was 165.36 billion dollars.

‘’The workforce is changing; education should change with it. Technological possibilities should be integrated in education and be accessible for everyone, anywhere in the world.’’
