Envisioning the Future of Education and Jobs: Trends, data and drawings
In conjunction with the OECD, this landmark new report looks at how to prepare the leaders of the future for the challenges and opportunities presented by the fourth industrial revolution. It concludes that the skills mismatch observed in the labour market has its roots in primary school, and that giving all children, regardless of gender and social background, the same chance to meet professionals in a variety of fields is the key to widening their view of the world of work.
For the first time, the charity is taking its renowned programme, Primary Futures into the local primary school in Davos. It has organised for a delegation of leaders to visit the school as this year’s forum opened to emphasise the importance of engaging young children to help ignite their ambitions. This is the first time children from the school have experienced such a an event.
The delegation will be led by London-based David Cruickshank, Global Chairman of Deloitte and Chairman of the Board of Education and Employers and Andria Zafirakou, the teacher from Alperton Community School, London who won last year’s Global Teacher prize.
