New Ufi Funding Round Opens for Applications (UK)

The Ufi Charitable Trust (Ufi), which aim is to help improve vocational skills in the UK’s workforce by funding digital solutions for vocational learning, has announced that its funding scheme is open for applications.

Registered charities, community interest companies, social enterprises, not for profits, companies, community associations, FE colleges and public bodies can apply for projects focused on adult and vocational learning using technology. Eligible applicants can apply for support for 2 projects at a time and Ufi envisages investing in a wide range of projects from amounts as low as £2,500 to others in excess of £250,000. Match funding is not required but for projects over £100,000, however, having other investment would up the chances of success. The focus is to develop scale through technology rather than specific devices, Ufi is looking to fund projects for networks and mechanisms that have mass penetration.

The closing date for stage 1 applications is the 12th May 2016. Successful applicants will go forward to Stage 2 and have a month in which to develop further more detailed proposals.
