Our approach to innovation at the college

Utilising the latest innovations, we create immersive, innovative, and supported learning experiences across the full range of courses we offer.

Our leading learning technology enables delegates to be fully immersed in virtual environments and engage with authentic scenarios to build knowledge, skills, and behaviours in a safe and supportive environment.

While our incident ground still provides the most authentic learning experience for delegates to consolidate their acquired learning, the use of virtual environments allows delegates to undertake a range of simulations without the associated risk, cost, and carbon emissions associated live scenarios.

The college has its own onsite Digital Team that works collaboratively with subject matter experts to define the learning of each course and then design the learning journey to best leverage technology to provide an excellent learning experience.

Brand new Virtual Reality suites are being built to support our digital transformation and provide a state-of-the-art learning environment for the delivery of virtual and augmented reality experiences.

Learning technology is also allowing us to connect with our delegates regardless of location. We offer a blended learning approach across classroom, incident ground, virtual reality, and digital platforms to provide a truly flexibility and personalised learning experience.

Our online learning management system scaffolds the learners’ journey, whether a face to face or online approach to delivery is adopted. The learning management system allows any course to have a bespoke feel and for its key performance indicators to be centrally co-ordinated and collated. This allows us to continually monitor and review our courses and drive quality.

Augmented Reality - Delegates With VR Headsets

Augmented Reality

We are developing a digital augmented reality fire appliance and light portable pump to provide firefighter trainees with an interactive model that they can explore in order to develop their understanding of the theory and principles behind water pumping techniques.  This asset allows the delegates to view the pumps in action, see how they are constructed and the flow of water through the systems thus enhancing their understanding and interpretation of the gauges and the systems to support their development into theory based , effective firefighters.  

Augmented reality buildings have also been designed to support the assessments in our Prevention and Protection suite of courses.  This allows delegates to be subjected to standardised authentic assessments that ensure the achievement of learning is fully assessed.
