Launch Your Career

Supporting Educators & Career Advisors to profile students on a mass level, collating data relating to the world of work, and exposing students to LMI data, career related video, sectors of work PLUS MUCH MORE.

LaunchYourCareer VR is available for schools to purchase on a subscription basis. Virtual reality is used to engage students in the career search and discovery process using advancing and relatable technology. Through the VR experience students are exposed to a personalised and gamified introduction into career search and discovery. They are able to interact with our Virtual Interactive Career Training and Apprenticeship Robot VICTAR who guides  them through age related psychometric testing to unveil their personality type, and align their personality and interests & sectors of work. Students can explore LMI data, and watch career related video content before deciding on a career.

Launchyourcareer.com is the gateway for schools & students to continue the search and discovery journey and extend the students experience. The data pathway from the VR journey is synced with the online portal, and allows students to build a personalised career profile that they can access again and again to record encounters, re-take the personality test, explore other sectors and careers, plus connect the student to colleges that support the courses and pathways recommended to their intended career.

Schools can also access a data dashboard of their students career profiles to support the delivery of career guidance in their school, including reporting functionality.

Students can access LaunchYourCareer.com for free, and have the ability to take our personality test online (no VR). They will still receive the same outputs and all functionality is the same for the student, it just loses the engagement piece that the Virtual Reality brings to the product and the ability for schools to capture the career profile and data.

The data that is exposed can support schools encourage career led learning, prioritise career related support and guidance on a 1-2-1 basis, provide a baseline for external careers advisors to understand the students decision making process, personality, interests and intended route of study. Collects destination data for schools and gives a clear overview of students that have not yet recorded their next steps. The data can also support the future content requirements i.e. if there is a group of students that are interested in Engineering, schools could arrange an Engineering Talk etc. Careers advisors can also use the data for interventions if students are visibly disengaged or struggling.

The data can support schools map to the benchmarks with regular updates and releases to the platform to extend that support.
