SKILLS & TRAINING Innovation and investment in R&D by companies like ourselves is


reducing cost and complexity barriers to the creation, and development of, immersive environments. It’s little surprise that PwC economists predicted that “VR and AR have


the potential to boost the global economy by $1.5tn over the next 10 years, with one-fifth of that ($294bn) driven by their use in training”.


REAL-WORLD SAVINGS Immersive learning is delivering real-world savings. Creating AR and VR training environments removes the reliance on location and time-specific venues. It enables us to open up spaces constrained by physical restrictions and


access those that would otherwise be limited by geography, budget or safety requirements. Skills training is brought to the participant, cutting the need for costly

and train staff to deal with safety-critical scenarios within a controlled environment. These can be revisited time and time again, and additionally can be

EFFECTIVE SKILLS DEVELOPMENT This ability to explore around, and even inside, products and situations enables a greater connection, promoting the idea of “thinking” and not just seeing. It’s active, interactive and, if created correctly, intuitive, inclusive and


collaborative.


THINK NEXT GENERATION TALENT Virtual digital skills training will become more significant in developing the East Midlands’ workforce of the future. The current generation of employees has grown up with emerging


technology, but the next generation of talent will have been immersed in it. Their affinity for technology-driven solutions and innate device


knowledge removes potential barriers to digital and immersive learning, making it an even more effective and efficient method of skills development. As we look to build a regional workforce fit for purpose, with the ability


to deal with changed physical and geographical environments, we need a comprehensive process of developing, enhancing and embedding skills – while providing training faster, more effectively and at scale. Supporting more businesses to step into the virtual world and provide


blended digital learning will enable us to make that a reality. The company delivers a


variety of virtual learning
