In an era where technology is transforming the future of the workplace to an extent that it is difficult to predict what successful professions will look like in the next 10 years, there is a need for a ‘Future Ready’ education that caters to the new reality.
In a report entitled THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION AND SKILLS, EDUCATION 2030, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) mentioned that “Future-ready students need to exercise agency, in their own education and throughout life.
The world is clearly looking forward to students and future leaders who have the knowledge, skills, creativity, thinking and ability to learn and adapt in unprecedented times.
The first step towards creating a future-ready education is a paradigm shift from the traditional teacher led-learning to student-centred learning. Student-led learning is a powerful method that steps away from the one-size fits all approach.
The most amazing thing about student-led learning is that it empowers students to play an active role in their education, motivating them to be committed lifelong learners.
To prepare students for the world of tomorrow, schools need to focus more on the skills and adaptability required to match the competition faced in this changing world. They need to develop the skills that artificial intelligence and robotics cannot substitute for.
This calls for learning on a deeper level- an environment that provides opportunities for critical thinking and the application of skills in real-life situations.
Future-ready education at Charterhouse Malaysia
Charterhouse Malaysia’s unique education programme ensures that our students will have the conﬁdence to take on the world’s complexities and opportunities. The school day is designed to furnish students with opportunities for collaboration and leadership.
These opportunities and experiences culminate in the submission of an academic essay, earning students the Cambridge International Project Qualification (IPQ).
A focus on interdependence and interconnectedness among the students, the school and the local community, instil respect for strong relationships and the value of good community ties.
