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.

We're proud to have collaborated with some amazing organisations.


Join us for lunch.

Each month we host a community lunch / masterclass mash-up where we explore a new skill or technology in a workshop-style format facilitated by leading members of the local community.

Over 600 people have joined SOMA for lunch to learn about diverse topics such as product management, corporate innovation, product management and virtual reality.
