Priority Skills for the Future - the FET Perspective (Online, October 2022)

Please note: This event is a repeat of a previous FESS PD event on ‘Priority Skills for the Future’, first delivered online in Spring 2022.

This session will look at the context of the Future of Work and how changed working practices precipitated by the pandemic have impacted people. It will address employer skills needs in an environment of accelerated change and focus on how education/FET is well placed to address these skills for learners.

Some research will be shared around the priority skills needed and how these skills can be best developed.

The session will also look at the value of intercultural education as an accelerator to the acquisition of these skills.

The target audience for this event is: FET Staff including teachers, tutors, trainers, co-ordinators, managers.
