Background to the White Paper

Explore our VocTech Challenge

In January 2023, Ufi VocTech Trust and Learning and Work Institute announced a new strategic partnership aimed at accelerating the adoption and deployment of technology to help every adult in the UK get the skills they need to participate and benefit from our transitioning economy.

On 24 April 2023, we released our VocTech Challenge: Skills for an Economy in Transition Green Paper. This paper was the first output of our partnership with L&W and for the following six weeks we consulted with stakeholders, our partners, and the organisations we support to consider what steps we can collectively take to significantly increase adult participation in learning.

Our commitments to an ambitious £3million programme of work and funding to transform adult participation in learning were launched in the White Paper which responds to the Green Paper’s research findings and problem statements.
