Innovative companies from across the Marches which use digital technology in vocational learning are being urged to bid for special funding.
VocTech Seed provides grants of between £15,000 and £50,000 for projects lasting from three to 12 months and has opened up a new round of applications.
TheVocTech Trust supports the delivery of adult vocational skills through digital technology and aims to use its funding to catalyse change across the UK.
The Seed programme is the Trust’s testbed where the first spark of an idea can be scoped and tested.
A spokesman said: "We are looking for proposals that are at a relatively early stage, helping to prototype ideas and work out the next steps necessary on the journey to long-term success."
The latest funding round opened on January 21 and will close on February 11.
A series of pre-funding online workshops are being staged to give you the opportunity to:
Learn more about the VocTech Seed 2021 funding round.

Discuss your idea in small breakout rooms.
Spaces for each online workshop are limited with some of them already fully booked.
