Summary

What are some of the amazing opportunities available to students when it comes to the future of work?   

Looking at 100 Jobs of the Future, students will explore roles that are expected to become available in the next 20-50 years. Students are invited to examine job descriptions, build resumes and link these roles to jobs that already exist today to demystify the fear surrounding the future of work.  

This is a fun, fast-paced, hands-on workshop perfect for students wanting to explore their future pathways. 

This program addresses key curriculum, including Year 7 (ACSHE120, ACSHE121), Year 8 (ACSHE226, ACSHE135, ACSHE136), Year 9 (ACSHE157, ACSHE160), Year 10 (ACSHE191, ACSHE192, ACSHE194, ACSHE230).
