Learning to Learn: Adapting to Continuous Workforce Disruption
Forty-six percent of Asia's employers have reported having difficulties filling jobs.
Nearly 50 percent of subject knowledge acquired during the first year of a four-year technical degree will be outdated by the time those students graduate, and 46 percent of Asia's employers have reported having difficulties filling jobs.
