VocTech Impact 2019 is looking for projects seeking between £150,000 and £300,000 in funding for 18-24 months.
Our VocTech Impact fund is specifically aimed at projects that have already tested a prototype or early version of their solution, have a clear demand or route to market, and are looking to reach a large number of learners within the funding period. This call is open to projects from all sectors and using any digital technologies. We are not looking to support learning management systems or non-vocational skills such as CV writing or digitising of existing learning content.
If you have a project that could solve practical learning problems, offering high quality learning solutions, and producing tangible benefits to learners and employers during the 18-24 month funding window, we want to hear from you!
Our first workshop was on 5th June in Edinburgh but we have two more in mid-June taking place in Lincoln (17th) and London (19th). Workshops are an opportunity for you to talk about your project one-to-one with a member of our team and gain instant feedback on whether your idea fits in to our criteria. Register for a workshop here (new window).
If you're wishing to apply but can't attend a workshop we would strongly advise reading the extra material on our funding page or e-attending a webinar which will allow you to explore the workshop slides - but will not allow you to ask project-specific questions. The webinars this year on on 6th, 12th, and 20th June. Register for a webinar here.
To apply online for VocTech Impact 2019 you first need to register (or log in). The fund is open for applications until 5pm on 28th June 2019.
To help give extra context to our funding criteria we've pulled together some examples of previously funded VocTech Impact projects but please remember that we are not necessarily looking for replicas or similarities - they are just included to show you how they met the qualifying requirements for funding from us.
