The VTCT Foundation is a charity created in 2013 to continue the charitable giving activities of the Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT).

VTCT has generously grant-funded the Foundation.

VTCT, an educational awarding organisation, has for many years been a major player in the development of vocational training courses for colleges, both in the UK and overseas. Its charitable status, which derives from such activities, is now focussed on the vocational training aspect of education.
