Aid Funded Projects

Aid funded projects present a significant new source of income for the sector. Around 4% of international aid is directly targeted at educational projects, and a considerable number of the remainder include education programmes.

New income sources

The UK education sector is currently under-represented in aid funded business, and the TVET UK team is actively working to raise the profile of our providers and suppliers and beneficial networks and contracts. We are building a strong presence among stakeholder and decision makers and this is now delivering commercially viable projects for our members. We are also helping our members to develop their knowledge and skills within this area through our Masterclasses and Trade Missions.

Recent successes include securing a €3 million Europe Aid project for TVET UK members, and our partners, to reform the Turkmenistan vocational education system.
