ReAct+ – The Redundancy Action Plus (ReAct+) scheme is the third round of ESF funding for training. CCW-Training Academy has been working on this initiative as one of the training provider in Wales to deliver vocational training courses.

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.

The ReAct+ (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 six months or are currently under redundancy notice and you require training funding in Wales, then read on.

ReAct Plus Grant application process

The first thing that you will need to do is contact a Careers Wales Officer explaining your situation and possibly 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). 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.

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+ 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.
