Future Skills Framework 2030

The solution is here and now

To meet the workforce needs of the future we must make changes – and now. Over the past decade there has been growing debate around whether our young Australians have the skills required to navigate our changing economy. We need an action plan about how to re-conceptualise our approach to the future of work and with it how we support young people to develop the skills for the future.

FYA’s Future Skills Framework 2030 outlines how Australian governments can work with young people, industry, educational institutions and leading thinkers across the country to move from talk to action, proposing four key things:

1. A National Future Skills Symposium
To identify a pathway to ensuring young people get the skills they need.

2. A digital platform for future career insights
That provides young people with localised information on the jobs available and the skills they need.

3. Enterprise and work-integrated learning initiatives
That provide relevant and immersive enterprise education and meaningful paid work experience.

4. An ongoing Future Skills research program
Young people will need re-skilling due to a changing world of work so we need to continue to generate new knowledge and evidence in this space.
