Social media giant Facebook is partnering with Simplon, a high school for digital studies in France, to create a new metaverse academy’ for students. The concept of the metaverse is based on augmented reality and virtual reality, and seeks to turn the web into a three-dimensional experience. This new school will offer free, employment-focused training in this emerging field.
French social networking company Meta is launching a “metaverse academy” in 2022. The term metaverse describes a virtual world that extends beyond reality. Designed to train a new generation of immersive technology experts, the academy will focus on virtual worlds and how humans interact within them. It will also focus on diversity, aiming to create 10,000 new jobs across Europe in five years. While the goal is ambitious, the schools’ mission is to provide free education for future tech workers.
A virtual world created by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is called a metaverse. People play, work, and socialize within these virtual worlds. The metaverse platform recently announced its plans to create 10,000 jobs in Europe within five years. The Academy will train developers in immersive technologies as well as technicians for support and assistance. Meta plans to train 20 people across five French cities. The academy will initially train French professionals on how to use the metaverse.

The academy will be free to attend and territorial, with a focus on employability. The academy will train 100 students free of charge in two “metaverse” trades. While the academy’s launch date is not yet set, it will be open to anyone who is interested in learning the technologies of the virtual world.
This new training platform will help students use XR tools to enhance their existing skill sets and create a resume for a career in the metaverse. Students will build their portfolios and skills by taking part in various courses that are modular and digestible. The courses will be taught via the Metaverse Learning Management System. Metaverse Academy will also demonstrate their latest solutions for knowledge transfer. The company will present the practices they use to engage with partners and implement XR solutions.
One hundred students
French media reports say that Meta, the company behind Facebook, plans to open a metaverse academy. The academy will train up to 20 people a year, and will be based in Paris. Students will study the 3D world and its interactions with virtual worlds. In addition, the school will be focused on diversity, with a goal of training at least 30 percent women in the first cohort. The academy will offer free training in immersive technologies, as well as support and assistance technician jobs.
The new academy is one of the most significant developments in virtual worlds. The company’s goal is to create 10,000 new jobs in Europe over the next five years. The company, which is owned by Facebook, is looking to expand its presence in France by opening up the school. It will train students in immersive technologies, such as augmented reality, and provide assistance and support for the digitally-savvy. The school will also be free and territorial, with an emphasis on employability.
France will soon see a new training program. Facebook parent company Meta Platforms will open a “metaverse academy” in France in 2022. The “metaverse” is a digital world that extends beyond our physical reality. This technology will allow users to experience virtual and augmented reality and the worldwide web as it evolves from a 2D to a 3D environment. The academy will train up to 100 people in two “metaverse” trades.
The first class, “Virtual Reality 101,” focuses on the real-world applications of virtual reality. Students will learn about the benefits of this technology while participating in a guided meditation in outer space, participate in class discussions, and create their own performances using virtual avatars. The courses are designed for students in a variety of fields and interest areas. The school also aims to provide a future “metaverse” for students who want to use their computer skills in the virtual world.
10,000 jobs in Europe over the next five years
The social network has announced plans to create 10,000 jobs in Europe over the next five years, focusing on a new computing platform, which promises to bring the world closer together. However, concerns about Facebook’s handling of personal data and the use of such technology in Europe remain. The social network will focus on hiring high-skilled workers across the region to help build this new platform, called the metaverse. The concept is a fusion of virtual reality and augmented reality that blurs the boundary between the real world and the virtual one.
The announcement comes as the company continues to expand its European presence and has recently appointed Nicola Mendelsohn as vice president of global business at Facebook. She is currently in the top advertising role at Facebook. The new positions announced by Facebook are a part of ongoing efforts to expand in Europe, where the social network already has large offices in Paris and Cork. However, it is unclear whether the company will hire in the U.K. or the Republic of Ireland.
