From education to employment

VocTech in the Criminal Justice System

This episode of The Edtech Podcast (@podcastedtech) was part of Ufi VocTech Trust’s Week of VocTech’. 

Ufi champions the power of technology to improve skills for work.

They do this through various grantees and investments, and more recently through funding specifically to ensure the continuity of vocational learning in response to COVID.

Various guests on this episode tell us about some of the projects Ufi Voctech Trust have been supporting that are involved in vocational education across the criminal justice system. 

You’ll hear about:

  • Providing access to learning environments
  • Tailoring and adapting learning
  • Assessing learning
  • Creating employment opportunities

Thank you to the Ufi Voctech Trust

The Voctech Podcast Series is produced by The Edtech Podcast and supported by Ufi Voctech Trust.

Our aim is to help improve vocational skills in the UK’s workforce by funding digital solutions for vocational learning. We only fund activity that is ‘scalable’ through technology, ie projects that use digital methods to widen access to vocational learning. While digital learning solutions are potentially open to all, we are especially keen to assist digital projects which involve post-school age vocational learners that have failed to be engaged by the education system.
