Two out of three jobs in the future will require a higher level of skills and better qualifications. In fact, in less than 10 years, there will be very few unskilled jobs. Learning new skill or gaining a new qualification could be a step in the right direction towards moving up the career ladder at work, earning more money, finding job, or just simply improving your confidence, life skills and self-esteem.
