Is the Future Now?

As the national skills agency, we are ambitious for a brighter future, a more prosperous, greener and fairer economy for Scotland.  

We want to work with partners, employers and the public to help shape our new Strategic Plan for 2022-2025. Read on to learn more about our work and how you can get involved. 

In an ever-changing world of work, is the future now? 

The disruption of Industry 4.0, demographic trends, BREXIT, the climate emergency and the global pandemic present a unique set of challenges and opportunities for Scotland’s economy. 

All jobs are changing in some way, new jobs and new ways of working are emerging, and Scotland competes for talent in a global market. 

There are questions that need to be answered:

  • What skills do people need to thrive?
  • What are the opportunities for business and how can they embrace them? 
  • What can government and its agencies do to help?
