Ufi’s VocTech Activate grant fund offers up to £60k for projects to develop new ideas
Ufi’s VocTech Activate grant fund is designed to support the development of early-stage digital tools and approaches with the potential to tackle vocational learning problems and transform how people gain skills for work.
Grants between £30,000 and £60,000 for projects lasting up to 12 months are available.
VocTech Activate provides a supportive environment to scope and test early-stage ideas, helping to prototype designs and work out the next steps necessary on the journey to long-term success. We are focused on supporting sectors, locations, skills levels and individuals who are less well served by existing training and tools.
We are delighted to launch our first VocTech Activate grant fund. We welcome ideas from across the UK which can help solve challenges in vocational learning.
Previously called VocTech Seed, recent recipients of the grant include a gaming application to develop the skills of prosthetic/orthotic support workers; a scenario-based simulator for trainee train drivers, and a VR platform helping carers gain insight into the experiences of people facing mental health problems.
