Ufi has a mission to use technology to transform the skills and employability of the working population in the UK, in order to improve the UK’s productivity.
Improving skills is key to enabling individuals, businesses and communities to fulfil their potential, and in improving economic prosperity and social mobility across the UK as a whole. Through learndirect, Ufi has a leading contribution to make in the drive to build skills, and in turn to build success on a personal, corporate and national level.
