Supporting Learning at Work Week 2019: Shaping the Future

Future of Skills 2030

Preparing people for the jobs of the future is core to Pearson’s mission of helping people make progress in their lives through learning. A student entering formal education today will be making decisions about his or her career by the year 2030. That’s why Pearson launched a comprehensive research project that moves the conversation about the future of work past automation.

Based on the work by leading researchers, the Future of Skills: Employment in 2030 project considers the major trends that will affect employment from technological change through urbanisation to political uncertainty to help  better predict how  these trends—and the interactions between them—will affect the future of work. It also shines a light on the skills that are likely to be in greater demand, including interpersonal skills, higher-order cognitive skills, and systems skills in the future.

Discover the skills you’ll need to be successful in 2030. 

Based on the research findings from the Future of Skills: Employment in 2030 report, our online tool will tell you the skills you'll need for a successful career in 2030.   Find out how the skills you'll need for one career compare to the skills needs of other professions.

We invite you and colleagues to discover the skills you’ll need in 2030 

To find out more about the research and the implications for employers, educators and individuals, visit the Future of Skills website.

As part of Learning at Work week, Pearson TalentLens are pleased to offer you and 20 colleagues the chance to try the freshly updated Learning Style Questionnaire, plus for HR and L&D colleagues you can join two free webinars on Critical Thinking: The #1 Workplace Skill and Learning Style Questionnaire: Insights for making learning more effective and enjoyable.


What is the LSQ?
The Learning Style Questionnaire (LSQ) has been used extensively within industry and academia for over 30 years, to measure learning preferences in people aged 16+. Developed by Peter Honey and Alan Mumford and based upon David Kolb’s Learning Cycle, the purpose of the LSQ model is to help stimulate individuals to think about the way they learn from their experiences.

Knowing your preferred learning style helps you to:

  • Match learning opportunities with the way you learn best - making learning more effective and enjoyable.
  • Become an all-round learner - increasing your versatility to learn.
  • Improve your learning skills and processes - increasing awareness of how you learn opens up the whole process to self-scrutiny.

 To access the LSQ go to: https://login.talentlens.co.uk/v2/KBEAVWZPKG 


How does the LSQ work?
The survey contains 40 statements, which relate to behaviours representing each of the four different styles of learning: Activists, Reflectors, Theorists and Pragmatists. Each statement you agree with counts as one point to the related learning style. The more statements you agree with relating to each style, the higher your preference for that type of learning will be. Your results are available immediately upon completion. The report contains results (p.3) and suggestions for action for each style (p.4-5). It provides an overview of the statements you have most disagreed with and a personal development plan to help you improve less preferred areas (p.6-7).
