Future of Youth Skills & Employment

Date: 20-Feb-18 to 21-Feb-18
Location: Ibis Melbourne Hotel / Melbourne / Australia
Category: Education Conferences & Trade Fairs

The recent ‘New Work Smarts’ report by the Foundation for Young Australians has found a third of young people are unemployed or underemployed. Of those seeking to improve their career prospects, 60% are studying for jobs that will be obsolete in 30 years time. Rapidly evolving technologies are shifting the way we work and the types of jobs available. In response, we need to equip youth with the right skills, information and opportunities to succeed in the future workplace.

The Future of Youth Skills & Employment conference brings together the key government, community and education stakeholders responsible for supporting the next generation of Australians into meaningful and sustainable work in our changing economy.
