  • Where did this program come from?

    The h+ Bootcamp is the culmination of 3 years of development, prototyping, iteration and refinement by the team at the Future Work Skills Academy.

  • Great, so who is the Future Work Skills Academy?

    We are the only training provider in the world dedicated to developing learning programs for the skills required for the Future of Work. But not just any skills; our interest lies in developing agency in uniquely human skills.

  • Who is involved in the Academy?

    The organisation was founded by educators and is populated by a global coalition of skills experts on those skills identified by the Institute for the Future, the World Economic Forum and a host of other organisations as THE in-demand skills for the 21st century human worker.

  • But I thought robots were going to take all our jobs?

    Well, yes and no. Robots (not just robots but machines using artificial intelligence as example) WILL take on more tasks within the workforce that is for sure. These tasks, however, are routine cognitive; activities that have repeatable patterns and don't require sensing, or insight, or imagination or anything... human!

  • So you are saying humans will have something to do in the future workplace?

    That is exactly what we are saying! Automation will see a reduction in boring work and an increasing role for humans to do what we are good at. That's not all though. We are going to have to learn to work WITH machines in different ways. And we will definitely have to learn to work effectively with other humans. Collaboration will be an essential means through which 21st century human workers deliver value back to their organisations.

  • There seems a lot to do in this Program. How much time should I put aside?

    Yes, there is a ton of content in the program but we have very deliberately broken everything down into micro-bites of learning content to make comprehension and recall more effective. If you do a couple of minutes every few days you will definitely keep on track with the schedule.

  • Is the content all online?

    Yes, and available anytime, anywhere. We also have a weekly check in with your Facilitator. In these sessions we will cover topics related to the Future of Work and also the skills scheduled for that week of the program. Of course the one day workshop at the end of the Program is in person!

  • What is the difference between the online and in-person training?

    There is a lot of learning science associated with uniquely human (or soft skills which is not what we call them here at the Academy). We took this on board in developing this program. Here's a summary of key themes: 1. Self-paced skills infusion (just getting your head around what the skills mean) is the best place to start. 2. Online learning supported by a facilitator is more effective than just learning on your own. 3. Applying the learnings to real life situations is a useful way of gaining agency in skills. 4. Learning in virtual teams is more effective than going it alone. 5. Increased agency occurs when self-paced learning is followed by trainer-led, in-person workshops with hands-on application of skills to a real-world scenario.

  • Can we just do the Workshop?

    We trialed this program across the world and found substantial increase in recall and retention for those groups doing the online segment before the in-person workshop. Those who just attended the workshop without doing the online program did not get as much out of the experience.

  • Is is really possible to learn 'soft' skills?

    In short, yes. There is significant research evidencing that humans can learn uniquely human skills just like any skill.

  • Shouldn't I be learning coding for the Future of Work?

    It will depend if you want to be a software engineer. And yes the number of these jobs will grow faster than any other in the labour market. But research is clear: software engineers are part of a growing number of workers who inhabit hybrid jobs. And what is a hybrid job? One which requires both technical and uniquely humans skills.

  • I can't make it this time. Will the coaches visit Australia again?

    Yes, the Program will return after it is run in the US, Europe, Asia, the UK and Latin America. At this point they are scheduled to be in Australia again in 2022.

  • Why the superhero theme?

    The answer is kind of long so we will offer the short version here. We feel that the 20th century did a disservice to humanity. Yes, loads of great things happened (including the introduction of superheroes into popular culture). It is our belief that industrialisation resulted in education and work that de-humanised us, shut us off from delivering our unique value. Comic geeks will tell you the difference between Marvel and DC characters is that Marvel superheroes are humans with unique powers that they only benefit from if they learn to control them. Without any particular focus on learning human skills our education systems have largely ignored our huge potential. At the Academy we are dedicated to making the superhero human worker the success story of the 21st century.

Hear from our superhero graduates

“The human+ program eases the fears many people have about the future workplace changing with automation and digitization. This program very eloquently and compellingly shows how inherently human skills are a must in the future workplace and how human capabilities can not be substituted with technology. Each unit in the program showcases how human qualities increase the value and advancement of the workplace. This program is a necessary reminder of what makes us inherently human, unique, adaptive and creative as the world around us changes.”
