Grants of between £15,000 and £50,000 are available for early-stage project ideas that use technology to improve vocational education. The aim is to test and scope ideas that may develop into successful learning products and services.
The VocTech Trust Seed grants are available to organisations across the UK, including charities, trade bodies, learning providers, employers, private companies, community interest companies and other not for profit organisations.
The UFi VocTech Trust will provide funding for projects lasting between three to twelve months which show how digital technologies can be used in innovative ways to improve skills for work. This could include design, development and prototyping, refining learning design, small scale testing with users, planning a route to market, strategies for scaling, project management, and evidencing impact & what works.
The closing date for applications is the 9th February 2022.
To help applicants prepare their applications, the Trust is running a series of workshops. Information on these can be found on the Voch Tech Trust website (link below).
