Ufi Charitable Trust - VocTech Challenge Impact Network & Grant Fund


This call is for projects that address the VocTech Challenge: Skills for an Economy in Transition programme. Ufi Charitable Trust are looking for bold, tech-led approaches to tackle one of three specific challenges:

  • Employer integration: How can technology be used to integrate and reflect employers’ changing needs so that the skills of the available workforce better match the needs of local employers?
  • Pathways into and within work: How can technology be used to increase the visibility, accessibility and uptake of pathways from learning into work, or from one type of work into another, particularly in regional growth sectors?
  • Vocational language barriers: How can technology be used to support adults with in-demand vocational skills, but who don’t speak English as their first language, gain the employment-ready English required by employers?

Success applicants will each receive a grant. They will also join a network of organisations working alongside each other as part of an active, expert-led programme designed to create connections, share knowledge, test assumptions and accelerate adoption and deployment.
