As the world of work changes, so too do the skills that people need to be relevant employees or business owners of the future. But are our universities up to scratch? Is the TAFE system working? Are we focusing on the right subject areas? Education is an important priority for any nation, and especially for Australia as the economy transitions to services. Without action now, Australia could fall behind in terms of productivity, competitiveness and equality.
In this episode of The Next Five Years with Bernard Salt, Salt is joined by Belinda Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of Universities Australia, Phil Honeywood, Chief Executive Officer of International Education Association of Australia, and Stephen Parker, National Sector Leader for Education, KPMG, to discuss how the Australian workforce is transitioning, and whether our education system is on track to facilitate the changing needs.
