@Edent no 😂 how likely is it that someone at a Job Centre can afford a VR headset (even a cheap one).

But ... training is definitely a great application. It's not just for technical things - it could work surprisingly well for social situations. For example: ucl.ac.uk/news/2016/feb/virtua

You could use it to give social care workers experience of difficult situations that they may otherwise be unprepared for - for example.

@Edent it could also be an inexpensive* way of providing hands on training to Job Seekers. Or construction workers, HGV drivers...

*compared to human instructors
