Adult education trust | Ufi Charitable Trust

The Trust

Ufi VocTech Trust became a grant-funding body following the sale of Learndirect in 2010. With an initial fund of £50m, the Trust is focussed on delivering an increase in the scale of vocational learning. We support the delivery of adult vocational skills through digital technology and our aim is to use our funding to catalyse change across the UK so that significant scale can be achieved in digital vocational learning for adults. 

Our Vision

We believe that the UK needs to accelerate the number of people accessing learning and gaining vocational skills to enable UK industry to compete in the global economy. As a funding organisation we believe that can be achieved through the use of digital technologies. Our focus is on the utilisation of technology to help adults gain the skills needed for work. This includes supporting learners as they move through their careers, providing opportunities for lifelong learning, and skills development in ways that fit around work and life commitments. Digital technology can change the way that we access learning so that more people are able to develop their skills. We see digital technology offering increased flexibility, new approaches to learning, new ways of accrediting learning, new distribution models and new relationships with learning providers.

A strong vocational technology community is fundamental to the growth and development of adult skills. We will continue to build links within the community, strengthening opportunities for investment and showcasing the art of the possible.

Ufi VocTech Trust is committed to promoting and funding digital technologies to achieve a significant increase in the scale of adult learners gaining vocational skills.
