How will Industry 4.0, or the Fourth Industrial Revolution as it's also known, affect the jobs we do and how we train for them? To find out, Steve Davis talks to the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) Managing Director, Simon Walker and AiGroup Head of Workforce Development, Megan Lilly. The challenge, they say, is to develop an agile skill base that can continually learn and grow, which means traditional education systems will also need to evolve.
