Several FE colleges to deploy Bodyswaps' latest career development simulations
LONDON, February 22, 2021
Bodyswaps is proud to announce its partnership with Writtle University College, Harlow College, South Essex College, Bridgend College, Sandwell College and the London Screen Academy to pilot its new Career Mindset Development programme.
As part of a grant received from Ufi VocTech Trust, Bodyswaps is developing an immersive learning solution which will enable Further Education students to practise their job interview and professional communication skills with engaging, safe and realistic virtual reality scenarios. Furthermore, students will get valuable performance feedback from their career advisor through Bodyswaps’ newly launched Coach App.
“In today’s climate, it can be especially daunting for anyone just starting out,” said Bodyswaps CEO Christophe Mallet. “Employers expect candidates to arrive in the workplace with ready-made soft skills. But with fewer entry-level roles on the market, there are also fewer opportunities to build these skills. With Bodyswaps, students get the opportunity to practise and perfect those all-important soft skills in a psychologically safe environment.”
Throughout the Career Mindset Development programme, Bodyswaps is looking to measure engagement and learning performance with a view to deploying the programme at scale for the Further Education market later this year.
Bodyswaps is an award-winning immersive learning platform designed to deliver lasting behavioural change. Bodyswaps’ VR solutions create a safe space where learners can practise soft skills, with AI-enabled analytical feedback to accelerate personal development. Since 2019, London-based Bodyswaps has helped a wide range of organisations deliver measurable value by building more empathic workplaces and fostering greater inclusivity.
