Across the globe, countries are facing high levels of unemployment, as well as a shortage of job seekers with the right skills at the same time. While advances in technology are changing the supply and complexity of jobs, many jobs are going away, but many others are emerging and growing – but education is not keeping up with the pace to close the skills gap.
Governments and policymakers are giving the education sector close oversight to successfully manage their citizens’ transition from education to employment. Key issues include:
- What are the skills which will be required in the future? And what are the foreseen gaps?
- How to improve education outcomes, access, and quality?
- What interventions, practices and training and research programs are needed for a productive society?
- How to unlock the potential of technology in developing talent?
Investors and education providers are mostly lagging in transforming their teaching content or delivery methods or achieving a reformed education vision. Key issues include:
- What is the future education model, and how to manage the transition?
- How to develop the providers’ teaching strategy, processes, tools, and people?
- What is the impact of technology in schools?
- How to partner with education technology providers and financiers?
At Grenoble partners, we believe education is the path to satisfying future job requirements and contributing to better societies. We advise public and private clients on how to manage these uncertainties, take the right decisions, and develop a value-driven education system that optimally achieves the required educational outcomes.
