Description

Even though the majority of workers are concerned that they don't have the skills required for the future, a recent national survey has revealed that more than half of Australian workers spend less than an hour a week on any form of learning. 

We weigh up the value of university degrees versus micro-credentials and hear how life-long learning can keep you in the game.

We also crystal ball gaze to understand what work and learning might look like for our newest generation - Generation Alpha. 

GUESTS:

Dr Sean Gallagher - director of the Centre for the New Workforce at Swinburne University.
Sean’s report is Peak Human Workplace.



Professor Liz Johnson - Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education at Deakin University



Mark McCrindle, social analyst and futurist.  Mark’s book is Understanding Generation Alpha.
