Future Workforce Model

Our Future Workforce Model, developed with support from the EDUCATE team at University College London, is based on primary research (from clients and learners), and extensive secondary research. The model seeks to understand what employers want, what citizens need and bridge any gaps between the two.

The Attributes 

Accompanying each attribute in the model is learning material and question sets to allow learners to measure their progress as they move through our programmes.

The model consists of 12 attributes which our research indicates to be vital to workers being productive, engaged and ready for the future of work. Each attribute is measured in terms of mindset, skillset and behaviour showing an individual’s development over time. The attributes can be mapped to a range of other frameworks, enabling comparisons and tracking of a person’s development as they move through a range of different contexts.

The use of one consistent framework for data capture adds value to the end-user in a variety of ways, such as viewing their progress over the course of time and, comparing their profiles with aggregated representations of people in a similar situation to them, with similar goals, or who have already succeeded in reaching a similar goal to the user.
