Today I would like to promote an amazing tool that I found on a website created by Pearson (international learning company that provides learning services powered by technology), Nesta (global innovation foundation) and the Oxford Martin School ( center of pioneering research that addresses global challenges).

This prospective tool illustrate and complement the study made by Pearson, Nesta and the Oxford Martin School regarding the future of skills that is available here.

This tool will allow you to discover the landscape of work and skills by 2030 and will show you some perspective of the evolution of your job and skills.

Basically its tag line is “discover the skills you’ll need in 2030 to succeed in your current job and compare these to others”.

You can start with 2 locations, US or UK, because that was the perimeter covered by the research. It would be great if they could extend the list of locations in the future because we all know that the evolution of jobs and skills will vary depending on global factors such as the economy of your country for example or the policy of your government in education even though some global common trends can be highlighted.

But the tool is absolutely great to start with and I encourage you to have a look at it:

  • to see if you can find your job or a job that is close enough to see how it will evolve
  • look at the results of the research that was done by Pearson on the skills needed in 2030

Personally, even though my job is constantly evolving as it is highly linked to the digital (r)evolution, I found some interesting information in the research and in the tool itself.

One of the conclusion of this research is very close to some of the research we have already promoted in this blog, such as the World Economic Forum “Future Of Jobs” report. According to Pearson, “our skills results confirm the future importance of 21st century skills – the combination of interpersonal and cognitive skills that has been an increasing preoccupation of policymakers in recent years”.

To access the tool, you can use the following link:

As a conclusion I would like to thank the team of Pearson, Nesta and the Oxford Martin School for this research work that is a fundamental research based on both a very innovative research methodology and some actionable results illustrated in their landscape tool.
