Ufi's COVID-19 response

Our VocTech Now funding call in response to challenges being faced in vocational education due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Part of Ufi’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic was to put in place support for immediate need of the vocational learning sector in the UK.

We did this through a focused funding call VocTech Now and sector-specific funding for FE, through our VocTech Partnership programme.

Through VocTech Now we supported more than 30 organisations across the UK during this period, and it is believed that more than one million people have benefited as a result.

We also produced a series of expert 'How To' webinars to help trainers and teachers negotiate the world of online delivery.

Ufi COVID Response

Recording of the live webinar from Week of VocTech, Jan 8, 2021.

This webinar explored how Ufi developed a number of partnership projects with organisations whose collective reach could deliver real impact and offer much needed support in the vocational sector across the UK during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this webinar, you'll hear from partners about the challenges of delivering vocational learning during the pandemic, what's been learnt, and what this means for the future.
