Utilising Virtual Reality to bring Work Experience into your setting.
Discover Reality will present a catalogue of work experience opportunities to your students using state of the art Virtual Reality headsets.
For the first time we are able to provide an accessible representation of a range of careers through this highly engaging, safe and inclusive delivery model. Through these experiences, young people will get a feel and understanding of what job roles entail and support them to make informed choices about their career pathways for future years.
Discover Reality has a direct line of sight to the aspirations of government to upskill our future workforce and address the skills gap by adopting more innovative and creative approaches to the way in which we engage our next generation of workers from a young age. Using Virtual Reality technology our Discover Reality model does just that. It embraces technology and puts the young person in the heart of the workplace through the use of the young personâ€™s virtual reality headset.
All headsets and equipment will be provided by The EBP into participating schools. Importantly Discover Reality ensures your students experience the workplace and have meaningful employer encounters which supports the achievement of the Gatsby Benchmarks.
