Future Skills 2022

Future Skills 2022 – Future Skills for an upcoming labour
scenario (TOP 10 II)

The world is changing and the way our new generations must be prepared for a new labour context is
changing, or at least it should be changing. But, is the educational system preparing future
generations to thrive in this changing landscape? While we can’t predict exactly what our workforce
needs will be in the middle of the century, we already know they are changing and will continue to
change with the rate of technological advancement.
The World Economic Forum has identified there are skills in decline (such as manual dexterity,
memory, technology use or management of personal), the WEF sets a new list of growing skills whit
a small presence of pure technological ones and predominance of “human” intrapersonal and
interpersonal skills:

1 analytical thinking and innovation
2 Active learning and learning strategies
3 Creativity, originality and initiative
4 Technology design and programming
5 Critical thinking and analysis
6 Complex problem solving
7 Leadership and social influence
8 Emotional intelligence
9 Reasoning, problem solving and ideation
10 System analysis and evaluation

This inspires a firm proposal of reskilling pathways for human capital in disrupted industries and jobs
to migrate to growing jobs or industries, collaborating with a wide range of data providers, to offer a
realistic and specific view of reskilling and upskilling opportunities. Here is where FS2022 wants to
focus, thinking in a pyramidal structure which will take as departure point VET students with the idea
to affect, in a mid-long term, a working population and a better trained society in these new and
essential human skills.

FS2022 project brings together a partnership of seven partners in six countries, who are crosssectorial
and will combine their collective expertise and new research to prepare and produce 40
audio and video clips to be used as training pills to raise both business and staff understanding of the
above skills and to retrain approach and thinking in these key areas. We will achieve this through
active partner participation at all points in a programme of two intellectual outputs, five partner
meetings, seven Multiplier Events (105 participants) and one train the trainer event (14 participants).
The world of work as we know is continually evolving and technological advances have led to a
changing skill set required to be successful in the workplace. The long-term results of this project will
be to provide materials to assist businesses and individuals prepare and up-skill themselves for the
future. Through our dissemination (project website, social media, five newsletters, face to face
meetings etc.) and our Sustainability Strategy we will ensure the results have the profile and
awareness to be rolled out in both partner and other European countries,
