Nesta is partnering with the Department for Education (DfE) to launch a new fund that will support the development of innovative services to help people navigate the changing labour market and learn the skills they need to find stable and rewarding work.
Nesta and the DfE have joined forces to encourage the application of new technologies and methods that improve the accuracy, effectiveness and reach of careers guidance and enhance the impact of training. The Adult Learning Technology Innovation Fund (ALTIF), will focus on stimulating innovation in two areas: information, advice and guidance (IAG), and online learning provision.
Through the scheme, UK-based technology companies will be encouraged to develop cutting-edge solutions, utilising AI and automation, to improve the quality of online learning for adults. The programme will provide funding and expertise to incentivise tech firms to harness technologies to develop bespoke, flexible, inclusive and engaging online training opportunities to support more people into skilled employment.
There will be a budget of £5.75million for the ALTIF.
The fund is not yet open for applications.
