For Learners

FOR LEARNERS: Did you know that in 2030, 85% of the jobs are not in existence yet? So, how can what you are learning in school today possibly prepare you for an unknowable future?

The answer is simple! You do not stop learning just because you graduated from high school. You must embrace the concept of life-long learning to thrive in a highly tech-enabled and information-driven future. Your skillsets are less about what a teacher “poured” into your head and more about exploring issues and topics about which you are passionate. In the future, employers will not be as interested in your grade point average as compared to the initiative you took to extend your knowledge.
