Speaking at


The Future We’re Preparing Learners For… Are WE even ready?

This year’s Grade 1 learners will finish Matric in 2030.
What world will they walk into? What skills will they need? Will they be going into jobs, starting their own businesses or something new? What skills will be the most important for you as a teacher to assist them to acquire?
What will success look like for teachers educating this generation? Are we ready to pull this off?

In this session I’ll share the latest findings on how the future looks, what trends will drive it and what skills are required for the future world of work. We will then explore how to teach these and how to assess them.
