Next funding round - VocTech Impact Opens 13 June 2018
VocTech Seed 2018 is now closed for applications.
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

Wordable, which is part-funded by Ufi, has been shortlisted for the prestigious ELTon awards. Run by the British Council, these awards recognise innovation in English language learning.
Ufi today announced the eight projects funded as part of VocTech Impact 2017, a fund focused on projects showcasing digital solutions for real workplace skills challenges. As part of its wider aim to improve the skills of the UK workforce, Ufi has offered £2.1 million in funding for projects which use digital technology to change how vocational learning is developed and delivered; and to ‘scale up’ this impact.
