IPT Breakfast Meeting

The job market is currently developing at an increased speed. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in new job roles that don’t yet exist. While the Government’s Industrial Strategy demonstrates commitment to developing the basic skills needed in a modern economy, we turn to look at how the education process can also positively shape this transition. This breakfast meeting will:

  • Look at the opportunities and challenges of the current education system, along with upcoming reforms, in providing the necessary skills for the future
  • Explore the importance of STEM and labour market skills for future generations
  • Discuss how the education process, government and industry can work together to create an adaptable system that can upskill and accommodate for future job requirements.
