Funding round - VocTech Impact Open 13 June - 11 July
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
£4,860,470 in grant funding
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
Today Ufi launches VocTech Impact 2018, for projects seeking between £150,000 and £300,000 funding for 18 months. Ufi works to raise UK skills levels by promoting innovative digital solutions for adult vocational learning. Our VocTech Impact fund is specifically aimed at projects that have already tested a prototype or early version of their solution, have a clear demand or route to market, and are looking to reach a large number of learners within the funding period. The call is open to projects from all sectors and using all technologies.
Ufi, in partnership with UCL, the University of Leeds and the Association for Learning Technology (ALT), has launched a new online course for apprenticeship providers looking to enhance their courses with digital technology for the modern workplace. The course is part of its popular Blended Learning Essentials (BLE) series, which is hosted on FutureLearn, the UK's leading provider of open courses.
