Pearson Publishing: Future Skills 2030

“Predicting the future of employment has itself been a booming growth sector in recent years, with analyses often designed to guide public sector and business investment and training policies. But we believe ours is the most comprehensive and methodologically ambitious to date.

“We have developed a novel methodology for predicting the demand for work and skills in the US and UK economies in 2030, one that combines the expertise of humans with the power of machine learning. This enables us to forecast quantifiable directional predictions for occupation growth. In addition, we have identified the skills, knowledge types, and abilities that will be most likely experience growth and decline. Importantly we have grounded the analysis in structural change likely to affect US and UK labor markets in the coming years.”
