Teenagers in a classroom

On Monday 7 December our Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull launched the National Innovation and Science Agenda, saying “…we are going to focus on talent and skills, training our students for the jobs of the future”.
 
Experts around the world agree that it is vital to prepare students for the jobs of the future. This requires strong foundation skills in literacy and numeracy, as well as 21st century skills.
