Education for the future – will it pass the test?

As the world of work changes, so too do the skills that people need to be relevant employees or business owners of the future. But are our universities up to scratch? Is the TAFE system working? Are we focusing on the right subject areas? Education is an important priority for any nation, and especially for Australia as the economy transitions to services. Without action now, Australia could fall behind in terms of productivity, competitiveness and equality.
