The results found that 50% of young Australians are convinced that their education did not prepare them for what they expect from working life.
The report, Amplifying Human Potential: Education and Skills for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, also found that two-thirds of respondents said that technology had helped democratise educational opportunities for them, and that learning skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields are a crucial part of the education process.
However, young Australians were the least confident of the countries surveyed regarding technical skills and job prospects.
In fact, less than a fifth had a desire to develop data skills, build mobile apps or learn how to code.
Further, only 3.41% said they wished to work for a startup, as opposed to a larger company.
