The National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) have released an article this week which tackles the issues of ‘technological disruptions’ and the flow on effect for the Australian VET sector.

It provides some fantastic insights into the way the workforce is evolving and changing to keep up with the increase in these technologies.

Within the article they discuss the growingly popular opinion that the tertiary education system within Australia needs to undergo many changes in order to keep up with the requirements of the future workforce.

Some other important findings defined in the article are, the increased need for certain skills, such as soft (interpersonal) skills, and ICT, which will help to manage and challenge the impact of these disruptive technologies.

The most relevant and pressing points that we at ATP have extracted from the article are that, the VET and tertiary sectors needs to adapt to these changes and create a learning environment that is easily adaptable to change and innovation within the wider workforce.

ATP are currently working on ways in which we can incorporate virtual reality (VR) and immersive technologies into the resources that we provide for the industry, with the aim to stay ahead of the technological challenges and changes. The hope is to educate people to become familiar and comfortable with these disruptive technologies, and to provide them with an understanding and appreciation of these technologies.
