There has always been a long-standing focus on formal qualifications within the education sector.
These qualifications are a necessary component between secondary and tertiary levels of education, meeting the traditional learning needs of our next generation. However, industry has become increasingly frustrated with the lack of employability skills, or essential human skills, in today’s workforce.
JBA have recognized that the education solution needs to meet this generation where they’re at - gamified business simulation courseware that is fun, engaging, competitive and the learning is transferable to real workplace scenarios.
