A recent Oxford University report indicated that more than 40% of jobs are likely to be automated by 2030. The World Economic Forum, meanwhile, advises that 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that don’t yet exist.
So how can students and working professionals prepare themselves to cope with such an environment, and ensure they are well-placed to grow and flourish in their careers?
The answer lies in soft and transferable skills. Competencies such as resilience, communication skills, emotional intelligence and understanding organisational psychology will be critical to ensure people have choice and opportunity throughout their careers.
At Griffith College, our small class sizes ensure students receive more individual attention and mentoring to enable the development of transferable skills. Our lecturers are practitioners, working in their industries. They are aware of the latest trends in their sectors, but also how to apply the theories learned in the classroom within a real-life business setting.

Constant interaction and support from lecturing staff paired with relevant content led to personal and professional success for the sisters.
Dublin’s Lighthouse Cinema formed the backdrop for the final year showcase of Griffith College’s Film and Television students. The evening consisted of talks from student representative Aisling King Swords and Programme Director Tanya Doyle, as well as a private screening of each students' short-film which they directed and produced as part of their final year project.
The students' films varied greatly in subject matter, from a documentary containing the last known footage of Irish National Youth Ballet dancer, Katherine Lewis, aptly named ‘To the Pointe’, to a dark comedy entitled ‘Good Advice’ based on a psychiatrist who finds the bad things happening to her clients slowly start infiltrating in her own life.
Griffith was also delighted to offer the following student awards on the night:
