The top level of the framework, which we have found across many projects around the world, includes COLLABORATION, CREATIVITY, PERSONAL LEARNING, PROBLEM SOLVING and GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY (includes recognising and valuing the culture and needs of others) and reflects those attributes for which there is historical research.

To date we have cross-referenced the top level Future Ready Attributes against these exisiting frameworks in use around the world:
- Curtin University Graduate Attributes
- Mastery Consortium Model
- International Baccalaureate Approaches to Learning
- ACARA General Capabilities
- Fullan 6C Model (New Pedagogies for Deep Learning)
- Global Digital Citizen Foundation: Essential Fluencies
- ISTE Standards for Learners
- Future-We Future Literacies
- Pew Research Center: The Future of Jobs and Jobs Training

How can you help?
By participating in the four phases of this crowdsourcing exercise, you will have the opportunity to contribute your insights and reflect the concerns of your sector as we face a future that will be created by the people who emerge from our formal and informal learning institutions.
We want to hear from learners, teachers, academics, businesses, government agencies, community and cultural groups to build a collective vision of the most necessary attributes for the future and ways to identify them.
