The Future of Skills: A Briefing for Teachers

This toolkit equips teachers, parents and carers with the latest information about the changing world of work and the skills that will be in demand in the future.

Nesta has collaborated with a charity called Speakers for Schools to provide teachers, parents and carers with an informative resource that summarises key findings from Nesta’s ‘The Future of Skills: Employment in 2030’ report. The report, authored in collaboration with Pearson, uses a novel and comprehensive method to map out how employment is likely to change, and the implications for skills.

Who would find this resource useful?

The resource will be useful for teachers, school leaders, careers advisors, parents and carers who want to give young people a better understanding of key skills they are likely to need in the future.

What does this resource include?

The resource summarises what skills, knowledge and occupations are likely to be in demand in 2030, and suggests classroom strategies to build these skills and stimulate discussion about this topic.
