REDUNDANCY TRAINING GRANT (REACT 3)
ReAct 3 Funded Training 2016
FFTAcademy are excited to announce we have teamed up with Career Wales to offer ReAct Government Funding to help support you with your Personal Training Certification.
The ReAct lll (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.
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). 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.
