The fund is currently closed for applications. Successful applicants to the VocTech Activate 2024 grant fund will be announced in May.
Purpose of the fund
VocTech Activate is our test bed where the first spark of an idea which could solve a vocational learning problem can be scoped and tested in the supportive environment that Ufi funding provides. We grant fund projects that are at a relatively early stage, helping to prototype ideas and work out the next steps necessary on the journey to long-term success.
How much funding is available?
VocTech Activate provides grants of between £30,000 and £60,000 for projects lasting up to 12 months.
VocTech Activate was previously known as VocTech Seed
