The best way to support our citizens is to improve their flexibility and help them to embrace a mindset of continual learning and application. Our goal is to turn passive students of knowledge to proactive learners who develop critical learning skills.
In the age of disruption, those who succeed are likely to be skilled in a myriad of areas, particularly in soft skills. Even as individuals constantly upskill, the reality is, skills have shorter “shelf life”.
Thus, individuals have to experiment with their learning and make informed decisions on achieving skills mastery. Organisations need to support and recognise the acquisition of these skills.
