Ufi aims 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 the development, use and implementation of vocational technology “VocTech”
Building an active VocTech community of educators, develops, designers, employers, investors and policy makers, and sparking discussion and debate amongst them
Using our funding to catalyse change in attitude, focus and investment in VocTech in the UK.
We have funded over 100 organisations with more than £15m since 2013.
We’re now using our experience in digital technologies, work related learning and in early stage investing to make investments in ventures which pursue both our mission and offer the prospect of strong financial returns.
