Preparing Australia’s young people for the jobs of the future

Work is changing, and our young people will need skills and abilities to adapt to the jobs of the future. The Future Minds Accelerator is designed to support and inspire startups and the ecosystem to tackle a 21st Century challenge: how can we prepare Australia’s young people to thrive in the jobs of the future?

The Future Minds Accelerator is part of Rio Tinto’s AUD $10 million investment in a new four-year program targeted at school-age learners. Developed in collaboration with BlueChilli and Amazon Web Services, the program aims to prepare young Australians for the digital future, helping fast-track development of skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, automation, systems design, and data analytics.
