Introducing Predict '22
Speakers for Schools is proud to launch our second Predict campaign offering young people valuable insight days, practical experience, and access to unique training and recruitment opportunities to enhance their understanding of the tech-accelerated careers that will exist in the future.
WHAT ARE TECH-ACCELERATED CAREERS?
Technology has already enabled many businesses and organisations to improve their processes and operations to become more efficient, more productive as well as develop new routes to market.
Changes to working practices have led to massive growth in technology-related roles in every industry, creating a surge in demand for digital skills. As technology continues to advance at a rapid rate, we will continue to witness new roles emerge that don’t exist in today’s workplaces.
These new ‘tech-accelerated ‘careers will be vital to the success of the economy and will replace many careers that exist in the current labour market.
WHY IS PREDICT SO IMPORTANT?
Young people currently in education are the most digitally and technologically aware generation to date, but many of the careers and roles that will seem normal in the future don’t yet exist. This makes it much harder for young people to plan and prepare for life beyond school.
The pandemic has forced almost every industry to adapt and embrace technology, but emerging technologies – such as augmented reality and artificial intelligence – stand to transform the way we live and work even more radically in the future.
Innovation is integral to every sector and as technological advances continue to drive change in every industry, Predict ’22 will open young people’s minds to the many career possibilities that these advances will create and motivate them to prepare for what is to come.
