Abstract

The purpose of this proposal is to investigate the need for the increased focus on developing transferable and meta skills of Graduate Apprentice Computer Science students and how the advancements of technology can impact the need for this. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is evolving at an exponential rate and is shaping industry and the workplace. The need for developing higher-order skills more explicitly, rather than through the hidden curriculum, will be investigated to ensure students are prepared for the constantly changing landscape of the workplace.
