Soft skills are increasingly in demand, but they can be difficult to learn and master. Our Bodyswaps training platform, available for VR, PC, and mobile, offers immersive off-the-shelf experiences that can help your learners develop vital skills like how to communicate, collaborate, and lead.
Learning soft skills forces learners to question not only what they know, but how they act. Virtual reality provides a safe space for learners to practise demonstrating empathy without judgement. Learners are then given the opportunity to experience how they came across from another person’s perspective and receive personalised feedback on their responses.
Learners have autonomy over how they access our range of engaging VR training. Each of our virtual reality environments and experiences has been designed to help prepare your learners for the challenges of the modern world.
