Climate change, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, demographic shifts, and migration are disrupting societies across the globe, making the world of work and the position of education increasingly complex, fluid, and unpredictable.

This webinar focuses on the role that skills anticipation systems play in understanding the need for new qualifications and competencies (NQC). It draws on work NCVER was engaged in with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and provides examples of how Australia and other countries are dealing effectively with the challenges of ensuring our training systems are prepared for current and emerging jobs in the new economy.
