The Future of Job Training
The way the world works and moves is constantly changing, which means that people have to adapt in order to work best within it. Processes becoming more automated and the idea of a ‘robot takeover’ are quickly becoming more of a reality; this doesn’t mean that things will ever reach Skynet levels (Terminator, anyone?) but it awareness of how technology is evolving helps in crafting the most effective training efforts and steps for taking your business forward.
‘87% of workers believe it will be essential for them to get training and develop new job skills throughout their work life in order to keep up with changes in the workplace. This survey noted that employment is much higher among jobs that require an average or above-average level of preparation (including education, experience and job training); average or above-average interpersonal, management and communication skills; and higher levels of analytical skills, such as critical thinking and computer skills.
A central question about the future, then, is whether formal and informal learning structures will evolve to meet the changing needs of people who wish to fulfill the workplace expectations of the future. A considerable number of respondents to this canvassing focused on the likelihood that the best education programs will teach people how to be lifelong learners. Accordingly, some say alternative credentialing mechanisms will arise to assess and vouch for the skills people acquire along the way.’ (Lee Rainie & Janna Anderson, pewinternet.org)
