A skills plan for our new reality

In times of great change, it becomes increasingly important to look at skills and workforce development with an eye to the future. As we reevaluate our global priorities, many sectors and jobs are changing dramatically; both employers and workers now need to think about competencies, technologies, and ways of working to meet the evolving demands of the labour market.

How can we collectively leverage training opportunities and partnerships between postsecondary institutions and industry to stimulate a future-focused economy and help more individuals find meaningful work?

In this episode, our expert guests will look at how innovative, diverse, and flexible pathways to education and training can better meet the unique needs of learners while responding to the current and future needs of employers.
