A first of its kind, Ufi is today proud to launch Week of VocTech, a week-long celebration of VocTech scheduled to take place in 2-6 November.

Now open to book, the programme of events is an online opportunity to discuss, reflect and learn about VocTech - which means technology that can be used to deliver vocational education.

All events in the week are free to attend, with all having a clear focus on the practical and inspirational.

Week of VocTech will be an opportunity for all with an interest in the sector to meet and explore what this means for VocTech in 2021 and beyond.

With the Prime Minister only this week discussing the need to reform vocational education, VocTech has never been so important and relevant to the national debate.

In a packed programme that includes live sessions and curated content, you will be able to join discussions with sector experts, take part in practical webinars and watch exclusive programmes on topics such as delivering remotely and how you can deliver at scale.

We will also be hearing from organisations with direct experience of using VocTech and the transformative impact that this has had on the services they provide.

Leading sector organisations and businesses from across the vocational education sector will also be speaking about their experiences in these unusual times and how they have responded to the challenges using VocTech.

In what promises to be an event like no other this year, we do hope you will be able to join us.
