Africa is a continent of tremendous untapped potential, with more than 420 million youth, aged 15 to 35.
The increase in human-machine interaction of the fourth industrial revolution (4IR)is creating new types of jobs and demanding a unique combination of “digital” and “human” skills in the modern workplace.
The fourth industrial revolution (4IR) is characterized by massive disruptions and rapid breakthroughs in technology-related fields. More than 130 million new jobs will likely emerge across the globe before 2030, which will require a set of soft and technical skills which are currently unmet by the traditional education models in place.
PwC research from October 2018 surveyed 1,378 chief executives from over 90 territories to query the availability of 4IR skills. The responses were edifying: 79% of the global respondents expressed concerns about the availability of key skills; in Africa this figure jumped to 87%.
