dc.description.abstractPCF10 Sub-theme: Fostering Lifelong Learning // The COVID-19 crisis was a turning point in skills development, propelled by the rapid expansion of technology-enabled solutions. According to the World Economic Forum report 2020, the rapid acceleration of automation and economic uncertainty caused by the pandemic shifted the division of labor between humans and machines, leading to 85 million jobs being displaced and 97 million new ones created by 2025. As the demand for new opportunities gather pace, skilling and reskilling strategies are crucial in meeting the perennial skills shortage. This paper addresses interventions for skills development through the skilling and reskilling models, training and preparing for the future of work. Mixed method research design was used to collect data which was analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively. The study revealed that the 21st century labor market demands the ability to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing world of work. The study recommended that skills development and preparedness is an inclusive approach that calls for robust preparation for the world of work, skilling and reskilling and thus should remain a policy priority. // Paper ID 4468
