The Career Design Life Simulation: Digital

Presenting our online Career Design Simulation

Looking for a way to communicate the skills message?

The Career Design Workshop marries the best of solid academic research with up-to-date industry knowledge from top practitioners from different professional fields. We have now brought the game and our workshop online, so that we can bring the Wit Grit Fit message to anyone in the world – regardless of location.

Created for the purpose of helping participants better understand the job market in today’s VUCA world, this game mimics the actual world of school and jobs.

In searching for a medium that helps students and professionals better understand and apply these key concepts of  Wit, Grit and Fit , we have found that educational live action role play (“Edu-Larp”) works well.

Edu-Larp has an inherent ability to flesh out a parallel world and actively engage participants. With its characteristic experiential learning, each participant takes away what he/ she needs most at that point in time.

Oh, and did we mention games are just really engaging and a lot of fun?

While playing through a simulation of life, participants will be introduced to the skills message along with career design principles (Wit, Grit, Fit framework) via thoughtful game elements, charts and leaderboards. All jobs and skills are based on the Skills Framework, which was co-created by industry leaders, education institutions and the government for the Singapore workforce.

What participants say about our career game:

Through an engaging, interactive experience, I have been able to discover my strengths and their uses in various career paths. The simulation allowed me to learn about what levels of education and skills are needed for any particular career, and how I can best set myself up for success in any field.

The learning journey has increased my awareness when it comes to planning for my future career pathways. Through games, I’ve also realized that each of us are different individuals with different aspirations and we must not succumb to peer pressure when it comes to choosing our career options.

The workshop confirmed our beliefs that success in life can be achieved when we work in industries that resonate with our aptitudes (SMARTs), interests and talents. While we still hold education as a priority, we felt that it is better to encourage our children on paths of their choosing.

I think the Career Design Simulation Workshop was very intuitive and engaging. Originally, I had thought it to be like any other workshop where I would sit and listen to a presenter, but it was definitely not the case!

As an avid gamer, I enjoyed this workshop a lot and thought it was extremely accurate.
