About This Event

With AI, automation, and technology changing the face of work, many of us will need to up-skill or re-skill during our careers. We will likely also be working into our 70's or even 80's as life expectancy rises. Chances are that we will no longer have just one, but several different careers in our lifetimes.

How can new models and innovations in education can make it faster, cheaper, and easier to learn new skills? Are there ways we can ‘make our own degrees' to suit our busy lifestyles and without the costs of formal programmes?

Join us on 23rd April at General Assembly to discuss how continuous learning is changing, and how self-led learning can, and have, facilitated major career transitions from our panellists.

About the Instructors

Evelina Kuusinen Photo

Junior Front End Developer,
Experian

After a career as an Entrepreneur and a Sign Language Interpreter I went for my goal to become a Web Developer. I put great value on using good online services and apps and wanted the skills to do it myself. The Web Developer Immersive course at General Assembly offered a great start for this. I'm currently working at Experian as a Junior Front End Developer.

JavaScript Engineer,
ITV

As an English Teacher turned Software Engineer, I am fascinated by the power of technology in conjunction with education. Technology certainly has the potential to educate, transform the third sector and ensure transparency. Whilst pursuing these aims in my voluntary work, I also work at ITV which continues to challenge the way I approach problems whilst building on the fundamentals in programming that I first learnt at General Assembly.
