New project funded to develop 'mixed reality' food safety training
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

Ufi has awarded £90,000 to the Grimsby Institute Group’s Flavours of Reality project following its call for projects that support workforce skills in the UK manufacturing sector. Grimsby Institute is one of England’s largest providers of further and higher education and will use this funding to pilot novel use of Microsoft HoloLens technology to create a ‘mixed reality’ training environment for food safety training.
We heard recently that one of our projects, Wildfire, has won an award as part of the edtech start-up competition at Jisc’s annual Digifest event. The competition aimed to find and support innovative tech solutions to improve education, research and student life.
