It has been an unprecedented couple of weeks and it is difficult to comprehend that we have now spent only 10 days working and learning from home.
In this time, we, as a nation, have all shown exceptional adaptability, creativity, compassion and resilience; in our ability to change the way we approach our work, think of innovative ways to continue to learn, challenge how we perceive and interact with others and manage how we self direct our time and motivate ourselves.
Although individually we may feel this has been challenging and stressful, pushing us very much outside of our comfort zones, and we may worry how we will cope as this period extends ahead of us, at DYW Forth Valley we are attempting to re-frame this in our minds.
For all of us: pupil, teacher, parent, business partner... we are all stretching our capacity, utilising our many skills and developing new ones.
At DYW Forth Valley we think the film below, created by SDS last year in response to understanding what future skills will be required in the workplace, is very pertinent at the moment.
So whether you are a pupil, teacher, parent or business partner we would like to ask: what skills have you used recently and what skills have you drawn upon that you didn't realise you have?
"Technological and societal disruptions are coming at us thick and fast. Whilst we cannot predict the future, we can prepare for a future that is increasingly unpredictable."
DYW Forth Valley are still here and happy to support you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
