GM VICE (Goulburn Murray Virtual Industry Careers Experience)
A bespoke online digital platform to help inform students, teachers and families about where the real opportunities are and open up real career conversations.
With high youth unemployment rates and growing skills in demand across the Goulburn Murray region, there is a disconnect between youth perception of the opportunities and the available jobs.
Through a bespoke online digital platform we are enabling young people across the GMLLEN region access to industry and exposure to grow. The platform will help inform students, teachers and families about where the real opportunities are and open up real career conversations.
There is huge growth in our region across multiple sectors, by growing awareness of local skill shortages and local educational pathways, we hope to keep young people in our region.
Part funded by GMLLEN, DJPR and Bendigo Bank, GM VICE showcases 24 skill shortages showcased across 6 key industries and 360 virtual environments for each occupation, young people will be able to step inside local workplaces of hear from local professionals.
I’m a school what do I do?
You can access GM VICE two ways, via laptop or VR headsets for the full VR experience.
Accessing the platform via laptop will allow your students to have a conversation with chat bot VICE, through conversation students will be asked about what their likes and dislikes are, their responses will direct them to a skill shortage area, or they can simply take the time to explore through all the industries and pathways.
As a teacher, you will be supplied with Student Workbooks for each industry so you can make a class session based around GM VICE, this can be linked to the Victorian Career Curriculum across year 7-12, and Work Readiness specific subjects.
To access the web version simply book here to receive your generated log in details.
If you are a Secondary School within GMLLEN’s geographical boundaries you can book to have the VR Headsets brought to your school, this activity will provide a more immersive experience without the VICE chat bot. If you wish to make a booking please complete this EOI form and a GMLLEN staff member will be in touch shortly
