£300K fund launches to develop new and inclusive assessment methods

A charitable fund offering two organisations up to £150,000 for projects that explore innovative approaches to assessment for vocational education has been launched. 

The Assessment Innovation Fund, created by the educational charity and leader in vocational and technical education NCFE, and supported by Ufi VocTech Trust, is for any organisation with an idea and interest in transforming the current education system.

Encouraging the development of learner-centric and adaptable assessment solutions, the jointly supported fund will look to harness digital technology to create a more inclusive, robust, fairer, and reliable assessment experience within vocational education.

Philip Le Feuvre, Chief Operating Officer at NCFE, said:

“Through the Assessment Innovation Fund, our vision is to push the boundaries of assessment and investigate potential solutions that will deliver benefits for learners and our system.”

Eligibility for the Assessment Innovation Fund includes, but isn’t limited to, training providers, qualification developers, awarding organisations, quality assurers, EdTech companies, and colleges.

The current funding window is open until 12 March 2024. Learn more about the Assessment Innovation Fund and submit your interest by visiting this page.
