Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Building Resilience // We are hearing a lot at the moment about ‘the great resignation’; Covid has exposed a number of hard truths to people about what they want from life, from their careers and this is leading to people changing jobs, careers, and in many cases, leaving the workforce altogether, leading to huge gaps. With the climate emergency and other global geo-political factors, there are growing industries out there that need a massive influx of employees, and a number of other industries which are going to be haemorrhaging employees in the not too distant future due to changes in working practices. Smaller-formed courses which give employees the opportunity to learn at their own pace and achieve in shorter time frames with smaller costs and with recognition, at an industry and/or national level is a huge impetus to learners to upskill and reskill and join these industries which are crying out for new workers. This video will detail the different ways that industry and the workforce can use and utilise nano- and micro-credentials to motivate more people into particular industries with the right skills and knowledge set required to provide the workforce industry needs right now. // Paper ID 6770
