We're on a mission to retool Australia, one learner at a time

Australia has always been a country of the creators and innovators. We're battlers who work hard and play even harder.

However the times are changing, and the jobs of the modern age are emerging. Over the next 20 years it is estimated up to 40 per cent of Australia’s workforce - or more than 5 million people - will be replaced by automation and shifting job markets.

SOMA is on a mission to help Australia retool, reskill and get ready for the future of work in the modern age.

Our past programs

Over 1,000 people attended our inaugral program of events offered in collaboration with our partners in 2017.
