Setting the right educational settings for the future

There was a time when workers learnt a trade or completed a degree or even learned on the job and that was that.  Not anymore.  The future of education involves an iterative process between workplace and learning place.  There needs to be a fusion of continuous learning programs bringing business and government closer to places of learning.  But it's more than this.  The skills that workers will need in the future might need to be sharpened every year.  Workers will also need to be entrepreneurial looking at ways of securing continuous improvement.  But above all workers will need to be adaptable and "fit-in-able" and which means that continuous learning needs to have a strong social element to it.  Bernard Salt is a dynamic speaker with a big-picture vision for Australia generally and education specifically.
