We all know that we are preparing for a disruptive future, but how prepared are we for that transformation?

Simply adding digital skills to a traditional education is not enough to succeed in the digital economy. Learning has to be re-imagined for the emerging futures of work.

Dr Sean Gallagher Director, Centre for the New Workforce

As technology changes the way we live and work at an ever-accelerating rate, Swinburne’s Centre for the New Workforce (CNeW) seeks to answer one question above all others: how do we ensure everyone can succeed in the future of work?

Through rigorous enquiry, industry collaboration and think tank analysis, CNeW will work to conceive new approaches to learning – to empower people and organisations for the new workforce.

Insights from our engaged research will help people and organisations with their real-world challenges, both locally and around the world.

Up against AI and automation, workers need to adapt. The question is, how? Swinburne University’s Centre for the New Workforce surveyed 1,000 working Australians across the economy, to understand how they expect to succeed in the future of work.
