If you’ve been made redundant, or have become unemployed, on or since 1 January 2020 you could be entitled to ReAct funding to retrain or update your skills. If you’ve got a new employer lined up, they too could get funding towards your wages and further training.
What is ReAct Funding?
The Redundancy Action Scheme (ReAct) is a programme of funding for training provided by the Welsh Government for people living in Wales who are facing redundancy or due to become unemployed, for whatever reason.
You can receive a training award of up to £1,500 to help you get the skills and qualifications you need to boost your CV and land a job. You can train while you are job hunting or you can go on courses to get the skills you need even if you plan to become self employed eventually.
Did You know
You are able to split the funding between multiple courses/qualifications (up to a maximum of £1500.00) and it can even help towards the costs of travelling to the courses, overnight accommodation (where appropriate), childcare and extra support.
Who is eligible?
Support under the ReAct scheme is available for individuals who:
1) Have become unemployed on or since 1 January 2020 as a result of redundancy, are currently unemployed, and who have not been in continuous employment for 6 weeks or more between the date they were made redundant and the date of the ReAct grant application
2) Are currently under notice of redundancy
3) have become unemployed for reasons other than redundancy on or since 1 January 2020, are currently unemployed, and who have not been in continuous employment for 6 weeks or more between the date of unemployment and the date of the ReAct grant application

How can I attend my courses?
Our priority is to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment for all our delegates and to ensure nothing stands in your way of your developing your career. As a result we offer a range of flexible training options, allowing you to pick your preferred learning method.
Our classroom training courses allow you to learn and interact face-to-face with our expert instructors in a comfortable and modern training environment. All of our classroom based courses come with the IT and physical equipment you need and take place at one of our learning venues.
All classroom courses currently have additional safety procedures in place, such as reduced delegate capacity, hand-sanitising stations, staggered start and finish times and one-way systems (where available) to ensure our learning environments remain safe and provide the same high-quality learning experience for you.
Our virtual training courses allow you to access live training from the same expert instructors that deliver our face-to-face courses, without leaving the comfort of your home or office. All virtual-live courses follow the exact same format as our classroom courses and learners will be able to interact in real-time with our trainers and other course delegates.
Did You know
We limit the number of delegates that attend our classroom and virtual courses to ensure you receive a focused and personalised training experience.

Can I split the grant across multiple courses
Yes. The ReAct training grant can be used on any number of courses, up to a maximum of £1500. You can also split the grant between multiple training providers.
Do ReAct funded courses include VAT?
No. As the ReAct grant is Welsh Government funded, all training courses which are being funded using the grant will exclude VAT up to the maximum amount of £1500. If your course costs go above the £1500 grant this will be eligible for VAT.
What if my courses cost more than the ReAct grant?

Please note any additional amounts above the £1500 grant are eligible for VAT.
