Rebecca Garrod-Waters, Ufi Chief Executive will present the vision for the new fund and what types of organisations and projects are targeted for funding. Followed by Q and A session
The #ManufacturingSkillsFund is open for applications 26 October 2016 – 15 December 2016 (9am).
We believe digital solutions can play a significant role in helping meet current vocational skills shortages and future ongoing skill requirements in the UK manufacturing sector, in particular in making training more accessible to SMEs in the supply chain.
We believe that there is a need to stimulate and encourage interesting and creative ideas that have the potential to transform how vocational learning is delivered, and to showcase ideas which are of benefit to industry and learners.
Between £50,000 and £150,000 is available for demonstrator projects which can be delivered within 18 months.
Projects must be collaborative - involving employers, SMEs in the supply chain and ed tech / learning design experts
Applications to the fund can be made online 26 October 2016 – 15 December 2016.
