New Approaches to Workforce Development

  1. 1. Trucking Game Simulation Example
  2. 2. NC Simulation Station Cont’d. www.ncsimulationstation.com The NC Simulation Station (NCSS) is a web resource sponsored by the Upper Coastal Plain Council of Governments (UCPCOG) and the Turning Point Workforce Development Board (TPWDB). The NC Simulation Station site will be used to provide updates on our regional and/or state progress, the games and simulations we are using, and a contact page for potential partners or sponsors to contact us to find out how to join our effort. As the concept grows it is our hope that more partners around the state can join us to advance game simulated career pathways, and build out resources that help to generate career interest across North Carolina. 2

  4. 4. Game Based Career Pathways Game Simulations Career Pathway In School Youth Out of School Youth Key Points • Use realistic game simulations to generate youth interest • Match simulations to industries in the area • Design structured learning curriculum for each simulation • Build the right referral network to help youth obtain additional training and experience 4
  5. 5. Sample Career Pathway Relevant Simulation Career Exploration Simulation Exercises Employer Engagement Field Trips Continuing Opportunities 5
  6. 6. Simulation Sample • Truck drivers usually start out as contractors where their pay is based on distance, and the value of the items being hauled. • Funds that remain after expenses are deducted are the contractor’s “paycheck”. • Speeding tickets and accident costs are deducted from the driver’s final payout. • Vehicle damages and normal use require routine maintenance, and those costs are deducted from the driver’s profit margin.
  7. 7. Simulation Sample • A player can save up enough money to start their own trucking company, and put themselves in the “boss” chair. • This simulation can also be used to teach Entrepreneurship skills to students. • A player must manage funds, cash flow, performance, and save to reinvest in the company. • If they run out of money they cannot hire workers, upgrade trucks, etc.
