Ufi Launches New Grant Fund

Posted on 9th June 2021 by Christie McAlpine

Opening on 29 June, Ufi VocTech Trust are looking for projects that address the VocTech Challenge.

How can VocTech address barriers and build bridges to create a step-change in learner confidence and motivation, leading to better outcomes for the learner, for the employer and society as a whole?

This Challenge is focused on adults impacted by the digital divide and furthest away from learning so they can gain the confidenceto get the skills they need for work.   

The fund has been developed in response to Ufi’s VocTech Challenge Green Paper which found that confidence was a major barrier to vocational learning for those most at risk from economic and digital exclusion.

They are running a series of online workshops to help applicants who are thinking of applying. Applicants who attend the workshops are much more likely to be successful.  

VocTech Challenge Funding Call Workshop

The workshops give you the opportunity to hear more about the fund and ask any questions you might have. The workshop also offers the opportunity for networking and small group discussions about your ideas with members of the Ufi team and other applicants. 

Find out more about the fund and register for the workshop series.
