Ufi Charitable Trust - VocTech Activate


The VocTech Activate grant fund supports the development of new ideas that use digital tools and approaches to transform how people gain skills for work.

They encourage ideas which have the potential to transform how vocational learning happens, rooted in a real-world understanding of the problems, issues and opportunities in the vocational sector. Projects will need to show how the idea is novel.

Funding is to support for the development of early-stage ideas, small scale testing, proof of concept work and the development of strategies to scale once Ufi funding has ended. This could include:

  • Design, development and prototyping
  • Refining learning design
  • Small scale testing with users
  • Planning a route to market & strategies for scaling
  • Project Management
  • Evidencing impact & what works

Projects must focus on adult vocational learning in the UK (be aimed at adults aged 16+)
