FUTUREPROOF CAREERS

The Futureproof Careers framework is a set of skills and character qualities that will always be needed and valued in the workplace. Futureproof Careers was developed by the Jaffa Foundation and comprises three elements: 

Portable Skills

Portable skills have value across industry boundaries and enable young people play to their strengths. 

Character Strong

Character Strong means doing the right thing and the thing that’s needed when it’s hard. For example, taking responsibility for results.

Build Assets

Assets are important in all sectors of the economy. Financial knowledge is a key skill for the future. 

ABOUT NATIONAL TALENT

 

National Talent provides courses and qualifications for the career skills needed in today's changing world. Courses are offered in secondary schools, colleges and universities.

National Talent was founded in 2020 by Cambridge graduate and EdTech entrepreneur David Jaffa. David previously founded SAM Learning, an online learning tool for GCSE and KS3 used in hundreds of English secondary schools, and Penda Learning, an online Science and Math tool for US schools.

David saw first hand how technology and globalisation are changing the world of work. This led him to develop the Futureproof Careers framework, on which National Talent courses are based.

National Talent operates as a non-profit through Jaffa Foundation and aims to launch a for-profit division one day.
