Arrive early for a 4pm sharp start!
Join the conversation around how the gap between education and employment leads to a gap between the expectations of the employee and employer.
Emerging digital technologies, such as smart classrooms and online tools, look to ensure deeper outreach to integrate education and skill based programmes.
Looking ahead, how can we ensure education and essential skills are integrated using relevant technologies and key stakeholders to maximise and sustain our future economies of scale?
We’ll start the conversation with presentation from Senthil Perumal of YouthHub about the recent launch of the Accelerator youth training programme at The Warehouse and how technology will play a significant role in scaling this. Then we will go to the floor to chat about the role of technology in addressing challenges such as:
- Is the scale of the youth-unemployment problem in New Zealand a result of lack of jobs, lack of skills, or lack of coordination?
- What are the obstacles that youth face on their journey from education to employment?
- Which groups of youth and employers in New Zealand are struggling the most, and what’s the role of the private sector, education and tools in combating this?
- What can be done to address the problem?
