Rhys Cassidy: How to Prepare Students for an Unknown Future
Unless you’re clairvoyant, it’s impossible to predict exactly what the future will look like for today’s children. We can try to predict which industries will grow and which will shrink, what sort of skills might be in demand and what skills will become redundant. However, at the end of the day, only time will tell. What we can do in the meantime is equip them with the necessary skills to confidently take on the unpredicted challenges they will face.
