CareerTech Challenge was an ambitious £5.5 million innovation programme led by Nesta and Nesta Challenges in partnership with the Department for Education.

The programme focused on stimulating new solutions for precarious workers, such as workers in low paid, insecure work, susceptible to change, to upskill and retrain online, or access accurate data-driven information, advice and guidance that helps them find work. 31 innovators were awarded funding and support via the CareerTech Challenge.
