Workplace revolution on the cards

Training
courses in subjects as strange as ‘webucation architecture’ or ‘nanotechnology’
could become the norm with the UK workplace set undergo a revolution in the
next decade.

New
research for examination board City & Guilds suggests that vocations will
change radically over the next 10 years because of changing technology and
lifestyles.

According
to the research, careers in science and personal well-being will offer the most
potential in the future.

The
research found that the hottest jobs in 2010 will include ‘nanotechnologists’,
‘longevity consultants’, ‘fun employees’ and ‘time consultants’.

Among
the traditional jobs most likely to face decline or even extinction in the
future are postal workers, estate agents and telephone operators.

Chris
Humphries, director general at the City & Guilds, said: "We are living
in an exciting era that is constantly evolving and bringing with it new career
opportunities."
