ReAct Funding

ReAct Funding**

Recently made redundant or facing redundancy?

You could be entitled to up to £1500 of ReAct funding to help you improve your skills and return to work. If you need to retrain and gain new skills to help you find a new job, the programme could give you the opportunity to enrol on Vocational Training Courses, up to a value of £1500.

You are eligible if you:

  • have been made redundant in the last three months, are currently unemployed and have not been in continuous employment for six weeks or more since being made redundant
  • are currently under notice of redundancy
  • have not undertaken any publicly funded training since being made redundant, including the work-based learning suite of programmes

The ReAct funding programme also offers a prospective employer a grant for employing you and further grants towards on-the-job training, once you have started work.

In order to ensure that this training provides the best possible chance of finding new employment, you will need to have your training needs assessed by Careers Wales.
