Even before Covid-19, the UK job market has been facing systemic disruption. The rise of technology and the digital revolution mean that students starting their studies now will often end up working in roles that do not exist yet. This, combined with the normalisation of remote learning and collaboration, mean that digital skills and agile, transferable skills are more important than ever before.
This online conference will bring together leaders from both the higher education and private sectors to scope out what the future of work will look like for today's students and graduates. We will explore what skills will be most needed for students to thrive in t-he future workforce, as well as scan the horizon for the new opportunities that the increased adoption of online and remote working present.
Featuring practical case studies and leading voices on skills policy, this conference is an ideal opportunity to reflect on and review your organisation's employability strategy.
This conference will be useful for all university staff who have responsibility for or play a part in student and graduate employability or skills development. Possible titles are suggested below, but we encourage anyone interested in the topic to attend:
