While the scope of topics covered at the 2015 Improving STEM Education & Skills Conference was extremely varied, one particular piece of research was cited repeatedly throughout the event: A Smart move: Future-proofing Australia’s Workforce, produced by PwC.

The key statistic quoted from this report was that in the next 20 years, 44% of the jobs we have today will no longer exist in their current form. Even more striking was that 75% of the jobs of the future will require STEM skills, which is particularly concerning given that only 16% of high school graduates pursue degrees in STEM disciplines.

The low uptake of STEM subjects can no longer be ignored. STEM skills will be crucial to the future employment prospects of our students, and to the future of our economy.

Download the Improving STEM Education & Skills eBook for exclusive content from the recent conference, with presentations by Dr Alan Finkel, Chancellor & President of Monash University; Craig Cormick, STEM Science Writer and Former Chair of the National Youth Science Forum; Dr Phil Lambert, General Manager, Curriculum at ACARA; Sally-Ann Williams, Engineering, Community & Outreach Manager of Google Australia & New Zealand, as well as many others.
