BRIGHT SPARK: Innovation hubs will exploit new jobs emerging in the digital age, with the impact of growth in artificial intelligence yet to be felt in the labour market.

“Innovation hubs” aimed at nurturing and attracting start-up companies are the key to addressing the threat posed to employment by digital technologies, according to Australian Centre for Innovation executive director Ron Johnston.

“Developing a core of innovation jobs is critical to capturing … opportunities presented by digital transformation,” Mr Johnston said.

Digital technologies are among the “megatrends” identified by the federal government in employment and careers in Australia over the next 20 years.

These “megatrends” will affect the ways in which people manage their careers, how companies manage their workforces and how governments regulate and manage the labour market.

There will be fewer jobs for unskilled people.

New jobs tipped in coming years include big data analysts, complex decision support analysts, personalised preventative health helpers and online chaperones who manage risks with identity theft, reputational damage, social media bullying and internet fraud.

Workers will need to embark on continuous training as new and different jobs emerge, particularly in the IT fields such as artificial intelligence and computing power.

The traditional office will become a thing of the past, while better paid jobs will more probably be found in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

A GREATER CHOICE: Seymour College senior students Laura Purvis of Farrell Flat and Millie Hooper of Myrtle Bank enjoy learning at the school.

​Seymour College has a long history of high achievement in girls’ education in South Australia.

Now, in less than two years, Seymour has been authorised to offer a new choice for students commencing in 2017: the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

Seymour will continue to offer both the SACE and the IBDP, giving students more options and opportunities depending on their learning preferences.

“While the IBDP represents an exciting new dimension in our curriculum offerings at Seymour, we remain strongly committed to the SACE and recognise that it continues to be an excellent and highly suitable learning pathway for many of our senior students,” said Seymour College principal, Melissa Powell.

The IBDP gives students a greater breadth of subjects to choose from.

It fosters in students a love of lifelong learning, enabling them to develop as problem solvers, deep thinkers and inquirers.

These qualities are in keeping with Seymour’s traditions as well as being traits required by universities and employers in the 21st century.Seymour has also been working passionately to introduce the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for its younger students from Foundation to Year 5.

The aim is to be fully authorised by the end of 2017.
