The award-winning role-play platform, C-Live, initially developed for teacher training, using interactive technology to allow participants to get real-time experience of a virtual classroom environment. This greatly help newly graduated teachers by exposing them to life-like classroom dynamics and personalities.
It has been further developed to include workplace scenarios that develop skills and accelerate learning in Leadership & Management, Customer Service and other real-life settings that employees wouldn’t have the opportunity to experience without being ‘thrown in at the deep end’. Clients include Hilton Hotels, Department of Education and leading Universities who understand that exposure to new or challenging situations in a safe environment is incredibly important. Their employees have time to practice difficult workplace conversations or manage awkward situations without saying or doing the wrong thing for the first time with their colleagues, which greatly benefits their workforce mental health and accelerates career progression.
