Future Proofing Your Child

In a busy, fast paced, changing world where change is the  only constant and knowledge is easily accessible, the concern
bubbling up is how to ensure your child is truly prepared for the real world. The 21st century skills are very different skills from when we were at school. Many are just common sense, however this is not so common.

In this presentation, Karen will explore some of the key behaviours and dispositions needed to be successful in the modern world. These include knowing how to question and problem solve, think flexibly, manage oneself, listen with understanding & empathy, and create and innovate – just to name a few. You will also hear about the future jobs predicted and ways you can support your child at school and home to ensure they are prepared for an ever changing world.

Be ready for an interactive evening full of great information, laughs and some aha moments…
