Apply 12th March - 5th April - read the detailed guidelines
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

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
