THE FUTURE OF WORK AND LEARNING.

Over five million youth are expected to enter India’s labour force every year over the next decade. Getting to the heart of what the future of work will look like requires us to engage with an inherent uncertainty and lack of predictability. It means that we need to understand the ways in which change could affect different groups in different ways. It requires broad-based collaborations to share what we do know, so that the classrooms of today create young people who are able to enter the workplaces of tomorrow.

While the mainstream narrative around the future of work is saturated with the risks posed by widening skills gap and growing inequality, adoption of new technologies can also catalyse positive outcomes, especially for individual development and ensuing societal progress.

A decreased need for old job roles will offset the increased demand for new ones. This necessitates cultivating an agile mindset aimed at acquiring appropriate skills and continuing that pursuit lifelong. This transition will require educators, businesses and even policy makers to reform education, training and labour market systems. It will be critical for individuals to take a proactive approach to their own lifelong learning.
