What does Ufi mean by ‘innovative’ projects?

We only fund projects which are genuinely innovative and can make a real difference to how vocational learning is delivered or accessed.  This might be through their approach, their technology or the sector at which they are aimed.  To be successful, applicants need to present innovative projects that bring a practical perspective to the design, delivery or accreditation of digital vocational learning. This could include:

•Early stage, emerging innovation in the use of digital technology for learning

•Early stage, emerging innovation using tried and tested technology for novel approaches to learning, to replace or complement traditional learning methods

•Projects which provide working examples of vocational learning innovations to show learners and employers how the idea works in practice

•Large scale, near to market innovations which demonstrate how the use of digital tech can deliver adult vocational learning at significant scale.
