Provides grants between £30,000 and £60,000 for projects lasting between 3 and 12 months to support the development of early-stage ideas that use digital tools and approaches to transform how people in the UK gain skills for work. The fund aims to support sectors, locations, skill levels and individuals furthest away from learning.
The design, development and early-stage testing of novel approaches to digital vocational learning will be funded. The focus is on “new”: this could be new tech, new markets or new communities of learners. Projects must focus on adult vocational learning (ages 16+). Applicants are encouraged to attend a grant workshop before applying to the fund: these are being held during January 2024.
Deadline: Wednesday 31st January 2024
