A smart move: Future-proofing Australia’s workforce by growing skills in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM)
By Administrator | 23 October 2015
After a sustained period of economic prosperity, Australia is facing some tough challenges. Slowing growth, declining real wages, falling productivity and end of the mining boom to name a few.

- 44% (or 5.1m) jobs are at risk from digital disruption
- Innovation and STEM education are key to future growth
- $57.4bn increase in GDP if we shift just 1% of our workforce into STEM roles
