VET VR Academy

Project period: November 2021 – April 2024
Target group: High schools and vocational training centres, teachers and learners in the hospitality industry
Coordinator: Pistes Solidaires (France)
Partners of the project: Catalyse Formation (France), ESHOB (Espagne), LudusXR (Denmark), Wisamar (Germany), Synthesis (Cyprus)


The context
The Covid-19 crisis has had a huge impact on vocational education and training. Many sectors have had to close or slow down their activities due to the various blockades. One of the most affected sectors is the hotel and restaurant industry. As a result of all these closures, thousands of young trainees have not had the opportunity to complete their work placements. Thus, while there has been a 22% drop in work placements in 2020, this is 50% in the catering sector. This poses real problems to which this project seeks to provide a concrete response through e-learning methods and virtual reality.


The various virtual reality projects in which several partners have participated in the past (Work-VR, Autism-VR, etc.) have confirmed that virtual reality can be an opportunity. It allows students to have a first glimpse of the professional experience they need to validate their diplomas. It also prepares them for internships abroad, as well as giving them an insight into the context in another country and developing their foreign language skills.


The objectives
VET VR ACADEMY focuses on training in catering, to develop teachers’ skills by providing them with innovative and attractive digital training tools. The interest in using NICTs also lies in a sustainable development perspective.

The objectives of the project are as follows :
– To respond to the new needs of learners in the catering industry, whatever their age, in response to the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic
– To develop the pedagogical framework of new digital tools for VET schools, teachers and trainers.
– Develop new digital tools for VET schools, teachers and trainers.
– Provide new practical learning opportunities in the field of hospitality for VET students
– Develop intercultural and foreign language skills of VET students in the catering field.
