There’s no denying it: The evidence all around us confirms that digital skills training is an essential part of any career plan. A recent report from FutureSkills states that “One in five Canadian employees is working a job that is at considerable risk of automation.” These statistics are staggering with an impact to 3.5 million people across 92 occupations in Canada. And, in a recent poll by KPMG, 80% of businesses indicated the need for more workers with digital skills, and two-thirds said they have difficulty finding and hiring the right talent. What does this mean for you? At Make A Change Canada we realize the importance of digital skills and work every day to support individuals facing employment barriers so they can benefit from the opportunity to gain the digital skills they need to be competitive in today’s labour market. In this information session we will explore current labour market trends, the importance of remaining adaptable, and upcoming skills training opportunities available through Make A Change Canada. Attend this interactive session and discover how enhancing your digital skills can translate into new job opportunities!
