Belfast Workshop 25th April VocTech Seed Fund
Find out about grants for your digital learning project. Free workshop for applicants.
Our aim is to help improve vocational skills in the UK's workforce by funding digital solutions for vocational learning. We only fund activity that is ‘scalable’ through technology, ie projects that use digital methods to widen access to vocational learning. While digital learning solutions are potentially open to all, we are especially keen to assist digital projects which involve post school age vocational learners that have failed to be engaged by the education system.
We fund projects which act as catalysts for change
