Problems we help solve

  • Attract trainees: Misconceptions hinder the effective communication of the value and professional opportunities offered by vocational education and training.
  • Marketing and information: Limited information about specific jobs, in demand skills, accreditations and specialties hinders students' ability to make informed career decisions, leading to mismatches between their skill sets and interests.
  • Up-to-date and current real-life learning content: Ensuring alignment of teaching content and material with evolving industry standards is demanding and challenging.
  • Save Time: Preparing practical examples to provide hands-on experiences and exposure to real-world situations via face-to-face on-the-job training is time-consuming.
  • Costs and Space: Showcasing equipment, furnishing advanced laboratories, maintaining training facilities and organizing site visits or field trips is expensive and space restricted.
  • Costs of engaging content creation: Creation of virtual reality and augmented reality learning experiences has until now been costly, time consuming and only accessible to specialists in AR/VR training.
  • Communication: Language barriers pose a significant obstacle for international talent, impeding comprehension, participation, and integration into technical education courses.
