‘Preparing for change: How tech parents view education and the future of work’ is a new report by techUK. The study surveyed over a hundred parents working in tech companies and found that the majority are optimistic about technological job opportunities of the future. Despite public negativity surrounding automation and new technologies, 64% of tech parents were optimistic or very optimistic about the future job opportunities that would be available to their children. Having said this, 73% believe that the curriculum did not place sufficient emphasis on the types of skills that would become more vital in the future world of work. They also think that evolution of new technology will require frequent retraining. 90% believe their children would need to retrain throughout their lives to keep up with the pace of technological change.
