The Simulation Centre at Coventry Univeristy Technology Park

Simulation Centre

Based on Coventry University Technology Park in the heart of Coventry, the Simulation Centre is a leading-edge, unique, purpose-built facility, located in the centre of Coventry. The Centre is used to create fully immersive, real-time changeable, virtual training environments, covering a variety of sectors, utilising the digital technology platforms from our partner company, XVR Simulation.

The Centre contains a 10 metre, curved simulation screen that is used to display the virtual training environments using the XVR simulation software. There are 8 break out rooms, all connected with audio, CCTV and an interlinked telephone system.

All training courses can be observed by professional trainers from our fully digital Observation & Control Room.

Through the use of the virtual environment, ancillary affects such as smoke and lighting, simulated smells, simulated media as well as real life actors, enables the creation of a very realistic experience for delegates.

By integrating this facility, our unique courses are based on experiential learning in an immersive environment. Creating a safe place to learn, improve and gain experience, people are able to evaluate their behaviours and improve their knowledge and skills.

Working on the principle that people learn by doing, the simulations are built on real work, with real people, in a real situation; based on specific business objectives developed with our customers meaning they are bespoke and specific to customer’s needs. After undertaking the simulation there is detailed individual feedback which can be followed up later with a review of the simulation video. This allows the trainee to self-reflect and consolidate their learning, before they return to work and apply their new skills.

Many organisations recognise the benefit of experiential learning in an immersive environment and return again and again to the Simulation Centre. Dynamic, rewarding, insightful, exciting and immersive, The Simulation Centre delivers real experiences, greater retention and assimilation of knowledge in a safe, dynamic environment and as real as you can get.
