Research in the US highlighted that the baby boomer generation had an average of 12.3 jobs during their lifetimes. There is evidence that this is increasing for younger generations, with a Gallop poll showing millennials as three times more likely to change jobs than older generations.
Our education system is still largely designed around early specialisation, which is especially pronounced in the English system with GCSE choices in Year 9. This mean that young people are sometimes less well equipped for the rapid changes of the modern working world.
Recent data shows that job changes are increasing. The growth of automation is likely to lead to this trend accelerating and therefore adaptability and the learning of new skills will be key. The growth of micro credentials and online learning should be an important part of this trend.
These trends make access to high quality and impartial careers advice & guidance even more important – a point recognised in the White Paper. ‘Skills for Jobs’ makes some positive contributions, but doesn’t go nearly far enough.
