About VIC VICE

A revolutionary new careers education platform

VIC VICE is a virtual reality platform that will allow secondary students to see touch and experience different workplaces.

VIC VICE will bring to classrooms across Victoria:

  • 360* virtual workplace environments with interactive touchpoints
  • Engaging video content featuring real people working in different industries

The platform is a modern solution to growing workforce shortages and a widening skills gap.

Why VR

Immersive experiences

Thanks to the feeling of presence VR provides, students can learn about their potential future by living it.

In a multi-sensory experience, it's easy to forget that VR experiences aren't real.

As students look around a complete virtual replica of different career 'worlds', the visceral reactions to what they are experiencing are designed to build a sense of inspiration throughout their exploration.

New possibilities

Where traditional means of work experience and industry tours are not always achievable, VIC VICE makes careers education more accessible than ever before.

Students can now be exposed to various industries both within and outside of their geographic region.

VIC VICE creates new methods of work exploration that overcome the difficulties employers, schools and RTOs may face in providing a variety of career exposures for unreachable environments or locations, or during difficult times like the COVID-19 pandemic. It also alleviates worksite safety concerns.

Where it all started - GM VICE

GM VICE (Goulburn Murray Virtual Industry Careers Experience) is a bespoke online digital platform to help inform students, teachers and families about where the real opportunities are and open up real career conversations. The platform showcases regional careers opportunities in 360 degree environments.

Building on an overwhelmingly positive response to GM VICE, VIC VICE was funded by the Victorian government to scale the use of VR careers education statewide.

VIC VICE will build on the successes and learnings of GM VICE to make Virtual Reality careers education a reality across Victoria.
