Our Vision is to create a world where vocational skills are
celebrated and valued by all as the engine
upon which the UK economy is built and where
development of those skills is made possible by the
best technology solutions, providing easier access,
greater opportunity and better outcomes for all.
Ufi supports the development of digital technologies that help
us all obtain the vocational skills we need to get more out of
our working lives.
We do this by:
• Providing funding, expertise and commitment to innovators
in vocational technology (VocTech).
• Building an active VocTech community of educators,
developers, designers, employers, investors and policy
makers – sparking discussion and debate amongst them.
• Using our funding to catalyse change in attitude, focus
and investment in VocTech in the UK.

It was great to hear the Prime Ministers speech on the 30th September. It was a welcome recognition of the importance of the full spectrum of the skills sector, and the need to focus on vocational skills as an integral part of our economic recovery and planning.
Following on from the Prime Minister’s comments on the need to improve vocational education provision in the UK and plans for the forthcoming Autumn Education White Paper and a speech next week on the same, there’s a timely opportunity to revisit an article written by Ufi’s CEO, Rebecca Garrod-Waters, back in 2018 (21 August).
