VocTech Impact: Stage 2 opens

Today marks a further step in our search for large scale projects which use genuinely innovative digital methods to raise the skill levels of vocational learners.

We have reviewed all of the initial applications to the VocTech Impact fund and have invited those who best met our criteria to submit a further more detailed Stage 2 application. So check your inboxes. The deadline for submitting Stage 2 applications is 7th September (5pm).

We understand that some people will naturally be disappointed not to have been chosen. It's always a tough decision when we receive so many interesting ideas, however our rigorous assessment process means that we can only take forward applications that most clearly explain the challenges and solution, and reach high numbers of learners in a short timescale.

Owing to the high number of applications it's not possible to give everyone individual feedback, but we will be publishing further guidance on our website. Thank you to all our applicants who have put a great deal of time and effort to put forward your ideas.
