ReAct ll Funded Training - By Mike Tan
If you have been made redundant in the past 3 months and require redundancy training, ReAct may be of help to you. ReAct entitles you to up to £1500 to retrain and change career if you live or work in Wales.
ReAct ll - The Redundancy Action II (ReAct II) scheme is the second round of funding for training. It is provided by the Welsh Government and the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) for people living in Wales who are facing redundancy, or have already been made redundant in the last 3 months (previously 6 months - amended 1st April 2015).
The ReAct ll (Grant) initiative provides financial support packages designed to help individuals to gain new skills, overcome barriers preventing employment (such as lacking qualifications), and improve their chances of returning to work in the shortest time possible. If you have been made redundant in the last three months or are currently under redundancy notice and you require training funding in Wales, then read on.
ReAct ll - How it works
The first thing that you will need to do is contact a Careers Wales Officer explaining your situation and the courses that you have chosen to do. Your Careers Wales officer will guide you through the process and write up a training plan. You will then be able to apply for React Funding for courses and training to help you attain employment.
If you need to retrain and gain vital skills to help you to find a new job, the Welsh Government can offer you a discretionary vocational training award and pay 100% of your training fees (up to a maximum of £1,500 as from the 1st April 2011 amended 1st April 2015). Additional funding can also be accessed to help towards extra costs associated with training such as travel, accommodation, and childcare. The ReAct award is for training that takes place while you are under notice of redundancy or after you have been made redundant but must be undertaken before you start a new job. As from the 1st April 2015, applicant must now submit the original National Insurance (NI) card or a letter from HMRC that show your NI number.
Funding for your New Employer
ReAct Funding also provides a 'carrot' for your prospective employer. As an added incentive for employing you, they can access a contribution of £3,000 towards the cost of your wages. By saving a potential new employer thousands of pounds, you have an even better chance of finding a new job!
So contact a Careers Wales Advisor to discuss any aspect of the ReAct ll funding process - we'll spend time with you to review your individual situation to draw up a training plan to suit your personal need. Our advisors are fully trained in making sure the right courses fit with your chosen career plan.
