Next funding round - VocTech Impact Opens 13 June 2018
We're looking for projects to scale up vocational education
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
70 Funded projects
256,000 people involved

Innovative, tech led solutions to improving adult vocational learning in the UK
Projects where some technology development has already taken place and our funding can help to accelerate its development
Proposals for products or services that can be scaled up to reach a large number of learners and thus have significant impact
New research released today to mark the launch of the UK’s first ever National Numeracy Day has shown that anxiety around numeracy and maths could be holding back millions of people from getting on at work or getting a better deal on their personal finances. The charity behind National Numeracy Day, National Numeracy, along with the campaign’s founding supporter KPMG, are hoping the event will raise awareness of the many benefits of good numeracy and help people to feel more confident in improving their skills.
