Continuous learning pathways
New future ways of working
The first step towards making students future fit is making them aware of the macro trends that are driving exponential change and their impact on the future of work and learning. In the expeditions, students will hear from industries leading the future of work, organizations leading the future of learning on why adaptation and learning agility are the keys to success. Topics will include in-demand skills, mindsets, new ways of working & learning that one needs
to thrive in the future.

Future-forward university degrees
Cutting-edge online certificates & degrees
Internships & apprenticeships
NGOs & Volunteering
In response to the need for continuous re/up-skilling, the education system is being unbundled: alongside traditional universities, a growing number of future-forward learning experiences, bootcamps, online micro-degrees & emerging work-to -learn opportunities are being offered to students as a cheaper, more rapid & relevant way to find a path to meaningful employment. Employers are also more open to hire candidates, who have embraced new learning pathways. In the Future Fit Expedition, students will have the opportunity to connect with a curated selection of 45 emerging learning programs that are centered around each of the 6 global challenges & that are leading the future of work & learning.
...build their personal roadmap in the future of work & connect with allies that help them take their next step
1. Start a continuous learning roadmap
2. Create personalised learning networks
3. Build a team of allies: purpose-driven peers, future-forward mentors & career coaches
We don't expect students to navigate this accelerating change on their own. At the Future Fit expeditions, students will be introduced to the "Future Fit Roadmap" app that will help them build their journey for continuous learning, and meet their ecosystem of allies (coaches, mentors, purpose-driven peers). Together they will explore the global challenges; navigate the exciting emergent landscape of new credentials, learning providers and pathways; practice in demand-skills and identify viable paths to students' next steps.

This next generation can expect to change jobs and professions multiple times across many new emerging sectors & in doing so, they will have to continuously skill up & quickly adapt to new ways of working. Being purpose-driven helps students move away from the ideas of a fixed "occupational identity" or "picking a major", and focus instead on the impact they want to make in the world as the North Star for their "next step" decisions. Future Fit expeditions are centered around six of this decade's most urgent global challenges explored through a "future of work lens". Students will engage with organizations leading in the "challenge space"; they will be inspired by the organizations's visions for impact; discover the emerging technologies, along with the new job roles & ways of working in each global challenge space.
