VocTech Challenge: Levelling up learning

Grant-funded projects

The VocTech Challenge 2021 Grant Fund targeted projects with the potential to create a step-change in learner confidence and motivation, leading to better outcomes for learners, employers and for society as a whole.

We were particularly interested in projects that would improve access to skills and employment for learners where there is a strong likelihood that, without positive intervention, they would remain excluded or are at significant risk of being ‘left behind’.

Recipients each receive a share of the £1.5m fund together with enrichment from Ufi.

The VocTech Challenge grant fund is one of the key outputs from the VocTech Challenge 2021.
