The VocTech Seed fund helps create a pipeline of new learning solutions by supporting innovative and creative projects at an early stage of development, enabling new ideas to reach a point where they can demonstrate their potential to customers or funders and reach the market. Funding is to support the development of early stage ideas, small scale testing, proof of concept work and the development of strategies to scale once Ufi funding has ended.
This call will support projects that show the potential to have a real impact in the world of vocational learning, and to ultimately make a difference to how people learn and to the number of people gaining new skills. Projects must aim to improve outcomes for learners and improve the quality of vocational teaching and training.
