‘Skills’ are becoming a global currency that determines not only economic prosperity and stability, but also increased opportunities for young people. However, views continue to differ on the most appropriate routes for developing skills. Navigating between different parts of the education system and making successful transition into work remain significant cultural challenges, which need to be addressed.
This interactive session features the perspectives of young people, industry, policymakers and educators who have been tackling these challenges. The audience will play a role in the discussions as well, helping the chair to test out key issues on the speakers.
