Why did you create this innovation?
We began with the vision for the need for upscaling, bridging, and helping today’s youths navigate the sea of career exploration. Believing that every individual is unique and that Grades merely should not decide what their values are, we hold a belief for a mind shift from the historical emphasis on marks to an individual’s skill set, interest, and passion to be the basis of career development.
How does your innovation work in practice?
LifeVitae is a deep technology, AI-driven platform, that places emphasis on human skills. As students fill up their profile with their lived experiences, a strength map is generated based on the UNESCO-WHO Framework of Life Skills. The data science algorithms used to generate these strengths are proprietary, having LifeVitae is a one-of-a kind platform that brings forth actionable paths that students can explore in trying to map out their future.
The LifeVitae method of identifying a student’s strengths is starkly different from the common approach of administering psychometric tests. Psychometric tests are typically one-time exams, often identifying students as particular stereotypes or labelling them. Unfortunately, numerous factors such as situational, testing, or self-perception biases can influence results adversely.
In contrast, LifeVitae allows students to develop their profiles throughout their school journey, allowing them to capture their growth and evolving strengths.
How has it been spreading?
LifeVitae is tied up directly with education providers such as schools, LMS, and ERP providers. They synergise different solutions and customise their offerings to ensure every student benefits efficiently.
Students on sign-ups can maximise the resources available to them for a nominal fee that encompasses access to various features such as all the Learning Paths as well as higher education options across the globe. In each Learning Path, students will be matched to live projects, internships, or jobs to deepen their understanding of the particular career.
LifeVitae has also partnered with Coursera, Udemy, and Spotle, to match students to a curated selection of bite-sized of bite-sized learning content, based on their LifeVitae profile.
