Ufi – VocTech Now

Ufi’s mission is to create a world where vocational skills are celebrated and valued by all as the engine upon which the UK economy is built and where development of those skills is made possible by the best technology solutions, providing easier access, greater opportunity and better outcomes for all.

Ufi supports the development of digital technologies that help us all obtain the vocational skills we need to get more out of our working lives. We do this by:

  • Providing funding, expertise and commitment to innovators in vocational technology (VocTech).
  • Building an active VocTech community of educators, developers, designers, employers, investors and policy makers – sparking discussion and debate amongst them.
  • Using our funding to catalyse change in attitude, focus and investment in VocTech in the UK.

What is the purpose of VocTech Now?

VocTech Now is a targeted grant call to accelerate the use of VocTech tools to enable those in work or training to continue to engage with their vocational learning programmes during this period of travel disruption.

These are small grants of between £10k and £25k to support vocational learning providers to rapidly transition to remote teaching and training and deliver accessible learning at a time of significant change.

VocTech Now Funding Criteria

We are looking to support vocational training providers who need to move to digital delivery methods in order to keep their learners engaged, as existing face to face delivery models are restricted as a result of Covid-19.

VocTech Now is a very targeted solution to address immediate barriers being faced by vocational learning providers in supporting users and by learners in continuing with their programmes with the closure of most training facilities.

We are looking for applications from vocational learning providers who

  • need to transition to digital delivery methods
  • have a reasonably well-developed idea about how digital tools can solve the problems they have accessing learners, as a result of the COVID-19 restrictions
  • can deliver to a significant number of learners through an existing route to market
  • can implement their ideas immediately and show real results for their learners quickly

VocTech Now is for projects that can be deployed quickly with direct positive effects for learners who would otherwise not be able to access learning, so that

  • more adults to access the skills they need for work and professional updating in this new environment of travel restriction.
  • the professional practice of learning providers develops so that they can continue supporting their students and move more practitioners into a ‘digital first’ or blended way of working after Ufi funding ends.

In order to achieve this, projects MUST build from a strong base already, both in understanding of the target learners, route to market and having some level of understanding of the current VocTech market or groundwork already in place.
