Question time: Jobs of the Future

Listen to Question time: Jobs of the Future

Today’s jobs have changed far beyond yesteryear’s projections. And instead of planning for one career, we plan for three or four. In this rapidly changing landscape, how can our education institutions meet new demands?

And in a world where old professions are disappearing, tertiary fees are rising, and unemployment comes with weighty obligations – how should the kids of today plan for tomorrow? And who’s being left behind? We’ll look at global competition, the loss of manufacturing and more.

With Arts House Greenie-in-Residence Matt Wicking, RMIT interim vice-chancellor and president Gill Palmer, Futures Foundation chair Charles Brass and Centre for Workplace Leadership founder and director Peter Gahan. Hosted by Madeleine Morris of ABC TV’s 7.30.

Question time

When you think ‘question time’, perhaps you picture rowdy politicians cussing each other out. But in our new series, we’re putting the dignity back into proceedings … along with a generous amount of time. It’s one full hour of pure Q&A between you, our audience, moderator Madeleine Morris, and a panel of experts in the evening’s chosen field of inquiry. Get informed about the key issues of our time, in the lead-up to the Victorian state election.

In Programme Three of 2014, Question Time tackles three critical topics: renewable energy, jobs of the future, and the always-fraught issue of transport, now and into the future. BYO hot potatoes and burning questions.

Hosted by Madeleine Morris.

Presented in partnership with Arts House.
