Each week, CERIC is on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are three reports that we found interesting this week:
Future Skills Council Report on Preliminary Engagement (Future Skills Council – Government of Canada)
The federally appointed Future Skills Council is working to develop a strategic plan to identify key drivers and emerging trends that will drive skills demands in the future. This report is a high-level summary based on meetings and written submissions from over 150 organizations in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
Lifelong Learning in Ontario: Improved Options for Mid-career, Underserved Learners (Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario)
This HEQCO report argues that adult learners represent a new and underserved market for post-secondary institutions, and their numbers are growing. It urges Ontario’s colleges and universities to introduce new short-term, flexible training programs that cater to the needs of displaced workers and other adult learners.
The shift to a highly digitalized world risks exacerbating the divergence in income and job opportunities between regions. Regional wage inequality in Canada has been kept at bay in part due to high wage and employment opportunities within the goods-producing sector. However, the strength of this relationship has significantly diminished since 2010.
