Understanding the skills for the future and the critical shortages that already exist in key industry sectors are ever-growing challenges for organisations. The Australia-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce will be hosting an enlightening exchange of ideas on this topic.

The Vice-Chancellor from RMIT University Professor Alec Cameron, was a key speaker in reviewing and challenge the thinking on future education, and how education is to be accessed and delivered.

The ‘Skills for the Future’ event was an informative session on the challenges and opportunities we face.

Andrew moderated a panel that explored:

  • Where are the skill shortages – today and tomorrow? What industry sectors are most likely to be impacted in the future?
  • How do we solve those shortages – the role business/industry will play, how education is accessed and delivered, how does the government facilitate & support solutions?
  • The importance of collaboration between industry and academia in preparing individuals for the future.
  • How important will ‘retraining’ be as part of the solution?

Andrew was joined on stage by:

Saskia Loer Hansen – Deputy Vice-Chancellor International & Engagement and Vice President, RMIT University

Elizabeth Vega OBE – Group CEO Informed Solutions

Amy Robertson – Talent Management & Development Manager at Worley

An excellent writeup on the event can be found on the RMIT website.
