Lifelong Learning with Purpose: Transforming Your Future
Lifelong learning is the ongoing and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for personal or professional development and is increasingly recognized as essential in today's dynamic world. In fact, according to a study by Deloitte, as of 2023, three-quarters of employers worldwide indicated having difficulty locating qualified workers, while at the same time, 46% of Americans see themselves as underemployed, holding jobs that they feel do not fully utilize their education or expertise. The cause of these shifts is a nearly 25% transformation in job skill requirements in the past decade. Projections suggest that by 2027, this shift is anticipated to reach almost 50%, highlighting the dynamic nature of the job market and the continual evolution of skill sets demanded by various industries.
Recognizing the evolving demands of the job market, there has been a substantial surge in the demand for micro-credentials, rising by 75% between 2020 and 2021. This trend reflects a growing recognition for targeted, short-term training programs that provide specific skills and knowledge, allowing individuals to quickly upskill or reskill to meet the changing requirements of today's world.
