HELPING STUDENTS FACE A VERY DIFFERENT FUTURE
HELPING STUDENTS FACE A VERY DIFFERENT FUTURE
What’s happening in Education as we enter the fully digital, AI era?
School is still being school and filling its role of bringing everyone’s literacy and numeracy skills to a basic, common level. However, the speed of global and social change since the micro-chip and dawn of digital age, means that Education has also taken on responsibility for such a wide range of subjects, it often can’t as a whole evolve or adapt to what’s needed.
This is doubly true now it’s becoming obvious that students need training in the soft, enterprise and future literacies needed most as AI replaces many of our mental abilities. FutureWe’s solutions aim to work alongside existing schools and Education organisations so students can find new pathways to having the adaptability skills that will see them succeed no matter what the future brings.
FutureWe’s works directly in schools and training organisations to share solutions so education leaders and students know how to explore futures, map skills and plan for success.

Nothing does that job better than this fab programme which I unequivocally commend.”
