Funding for Digital Solutions in Vocational Training (UK)

The UFI Charitable Trust (Ufi), which aims to help improve vocational skills in the UK’s workforce, has announced that early in January it will launch the first of its 2017 funding calls.

The Voctech Impact call will be aimed at raising UK workforce skills levels through digital solutions for vocational learning. The fund will offer grants of £150,000 plus, for projects up to 18 months long, that deliver significant amounts of learning during the project period. The emphasis of the project must be on new learning tools which use genuinely innovative methods to raise the skills levels for a significant number of learners. It will be an open call, although there are areas where Ufi are particularly keen to see projects, including automated and machine learning, analytic tools and hyper-local projects linking employers and learners.

More information will be published on the Ufi website shortly.
