BMet digital prospectus innovatively and interactively brings student opportunities to life
Prospective BMet students can now find out about the diverse and dynamic range of opportunities available to them at the college, via a new interactive digital prospectus.
The launch of the prospectus coincides with Birmingham Tech Week, a festival of digital, technology and innovation across Birmingham. BMet is proud to be a sponsor.
The new digital prospectus, uses eye catching and engaging effects including 360-degree view experiences and innovative imagery, to give users a unique insight into BMet’s variety of specialisms and college life.
Content includes short videos from students and teaching staff extolling the benefits of student life at BMet and the world of opportunities that studying at one of the three colleges brings.
A key feature of the prospectus is the interactive career focused “Launch your career quiz”, which gives a personalised journey into suitable employment routes – all linked to the characteristics of an animal!
Coming soon to Y11 pupils: The digital prospectus will soon be mobile via a Virtual Reality Careers Training and Apprenticeship robot called VICTAR VR! School pupils from across the city will have the chance to immerse themselves in the world of VR; where the prospectus career quiz will be gamified taking them on a journey of self-discovery helping them find a possible future career.
|To coincide with all this, BMet’s new Emsi Careers Coach software, is now featured live on the college website. This includes a short questionnaire to find out possible suitable career options and courses that will lead students (regardless of age) there.
From December 2021, each course page will link to direct labour market information, so that applicants can see what they could earn before they apply!
Pat Carvalho, BMet Principal and Chief Executive, said: “We are so pleased to be able to showcase our diverse range of specialisms via our new interactive digital prospectus, launched to coincide with Birmingham Tech Week.
“We are giving applicants and our own students plenty of choice when it comes to finding the right course and ultimately career for them. Be that via the funky launch your career quiz or the EMSI careers coach tool.
“We believe that engaging young people right at the beginning of their career exploration is vitally important. Via our new prospectus and VR tech, that we plan to use in schools, we will be able to immerse them in their own personal journey to help them find a career that suits their personality, strengths and interests.
“In fact, whatever a persons’ age or career, I invite people to take our quizzes – they might the surprised by the results and we are sure to have the right course to get them onto a new path or to further their career.”
