Event description

Description

Within the next three years, over half (54%) of all employees will require significant upskilling and reskilling. As we hurtle towards an increasingly connected world, there are concerns that the tools are not yet in place to support this need, and that there's a lack of understanding around what the skills required even are, or will be.

What type of innovative learning methods should we look be using? How can we ensure that new ways of learning support the need to build an inclusive and diverse workforce? How can we create systems that will cater to a future that requires continuous skilling needs for new types of skills?

Join us for this London EdTech Week panel for a breakfast to hear from a panel of global industry experts who will share expert perspectives on the future of learning and work.

8.30-9.00 Registration and networking
9.00-10.00 Panel discussion
10.00-10.30 Networking
