The Tourism industry was unquestionably one of the hardest hit industries since the pandemic. Since the introduction of pandemic-related restrictions, the industry that was once reliant on migrant workers needed a stronger attraction strategy to introduce local talent to tourism and hospitality opportunities. Our partners, Go with Tourism, looked to SkillsVR to create an engaging VR module to help young people and students become familiar with the plethora of exciting roles across the tourism and hospitality sectors, and their own suitability for them.
The module is built around the world of espionage, where students begin at a central ‘hub’ location. As a recruit, the learner will be gathering intel to infiltrate the tourism industry, where they navigate to seven different environments that represent the tourism industry sectors, meet people working in tourism to capture overview information, uncover the job requirements, and find the role in tourism and hospitality that suits their strengths and personality the most.
The module is rife with spy-related themes, such as handy spy gadgets, finding hidden clues, and more, to gamify the learning experience and improve excitement.
