The future of work is radically different from what you see or experience today. Together with the rapid developments in technology and society, the future our children will see will be very different. They will most likely go through multiple career shifts in their lifetimes. The nature of jobs will become increasingly specialized and technology driven. Many of the jobs and roles we know today will not exist after ten years.
In this scenario, there is a lot we need to do as parents to help our children succeed in whatever they set their sights on. It matters to start as early as you can for a very simple reason. The skills of tomorrow need to be nurtured sooner than later. If enough attention is not paid to nurturing creativity and critical thinking now, the learning gaps across the years will continue to widen, thus reducing the chances for meeting their goals.
As a parent, where does one start? Is it too late if our child is in secondary school, or too early if our child is just starting out. In my opinion, it is neither too late nor too early for you to start, but you must try and start as soon as possible on the path towards the new future of work.
What does that mean? To begin with, you must start with an assessment of where your child is with respect to a wider cohort than just the class in which he or she is studying. If our children are to operate in a global workforce, they need to view their own progress in the context of what others are doing around the world.
Once the assessment is made, you may have a clearer sense of the direction you need to take with your child. Combine your insights into their co-curricular skills and interests with an assessment by an expert academic counsellor. This will help you plan a roadmap for your child, allowing enough space for academic rigor along with pursuing passions in other areas such as the performing arts or sports.
Children change as they grow, as they are subject to many influences. The assessment, counselling and realignment of goals is a continuous process - measure, adjust, improve and then keep doing that regularly. This will allow you to help your child accommodate all their interests, while building the foundations for continuous growth, wherever they are, whenever they need.
That is what lifelong learning is all about - building the essential learning skills - if children can learn how to learn, they will be able to face an uncertain future. But it is in your hands to build their capability, right now!
So take the first step today and get an internationally benchmarked assessment completed for your child!
Over the past few years, we have interacted with many parents and teachers who have told us how important it is to assess their child's performance with their peers not just at their school, but both at national and international levels. They have told us how the results of such an assessment would give them a far more realistic understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of their children and enable them to choose better strategies to ensure the children succeed.
We know how important this can be for you, and our team has worked relentlessly over the past year to create the right assessment solution.
