Integrity Business College has a philosophy that technology will eventually be integrated into every aspect of our lives. Hence, it is imperative that up and coming generations receive the most current training in technologies and industry requirements to ensure they have the skills to move with the technological advances. Industries are coming to the realisation that this will happen and there is the need to embrace change.
A recent article in The Age says that nearly half of the jobs in Australia are at high risk of “digital disruption” in the next 20 years, according to a new report by PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
Many of the jobs people work in today “simply won’t exist in the next decade, either entirely, or at the same number”. The report’s modelling shows the top three occupations in Australia most at risk of being automated in the next two decades are accountants, cashiers and administration workers, affecting more than 600, 000 workers.It says about 44 percent of jobs are at high risk of being affected by computerisation over the next 20 years.
Labor MP Tim Watts has said “modern societies needed to incorporate ‘computational thinking’ into their educational systems from the earliest stages”.
Integrity hopes that by assisting students to get a headstart in their careers it will enable them to be the future of the industry and have the necessary skills to be the workers of tomorrow.
