Preparing High School Students For 21st Century Careers
- The Free X Challenge -
These 2020 statistics show a rapid change in how we understand the careers of tomorrow.
University students will switch jobs an average of 12 times during their working life, and will switch industries an average of 5 times.
In the next decade, 60% of jobs in the workforce will be new.
The half-life (the period of time a skill is deemed useful and valuable) of a skill is now 5 years. For example, a skill you learned 10 years ago is likely to be less valuable or no longer has value in the workplace.
Career development, experiential learning and international networking will be key to prepare our students to be truly future-ready.
What is the X Challenge?
Challenge briefs set out by real life international clients working towards the 17 sustainable development goals

What are the 5 most important things in a relationship
Although it maybe hard to believe, all relationships are not the same. Ideally, when entering into a new relationship you should go into it open minded and with boundaries. What is important to you may not be important to someone else. Learn your love language, access the things that make you happy, make a list and then go on the hunt: communication, thoughtfulness, respect, boundaries and trust are most common.

Should you tell your partner everything?
How do you know when a man is serious about you?
When a man is serious about a woman she will not have to ask nor wonder, he will make it clear. He will want to spend a lot of time with you, look to introduce you to his friends and family members, as well as get to know your friends and family members. Men with bad intentions are easy to spot, you only need to FEEL that something is wrong and always trust your gut.
