A virtual immersion into Vocational Training: Preparing students with the help of simulators

10 November 2021

67,000 TVET students in Ukraine will get access to virtual training simulating key technical processes in 4 occupations. The ILO supported the development of four virtual training simulators. These efforts are part of the plans of the Ministry of Education to modernize vocational education and the active integration of modern technologies into curricula in the COVID-19 pandemic context. Students of vocational education institutions will be able to immerse virtually into work processes at a power plant, at sewing workshops, a restaurant’s hot shop, and a car diagnostic and service station. Digital technologies can simulate quite realistically a real work environment, professional equipment and work processes. This allows students to train in a safe context and to internalize work procedures more effectively. All these new learning technologies are available for students through the support of the ILO project “E-TVET in Ukraine: Training continuity and modernization during COVID-19 and beyond”.
