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

Jisc are inviting student teams from across the UK to help build the campus of the future. They are looking for some creative students to spend a week in August building and testing tools that can enhance the student experience.The aim of the August 'hackathon' is for student teams to design, develop and build “something” that would benefit students in the world that is the intelligent campus. Teams should ideally be between 2-4 people.
There's up to £1,000 in prizes up for grabs, and Jisc will provide equipment and cover accommodation and expenses.
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.
