ProAct provides training assistance to businesses experiencing
difficulties due to the economic downturn and to those looking to
prepare for recovery by up-skilling their workforce.
The £48m Welsh Government scheme provides financial support
towards training that prevents redundancy while supporting the wage
costs of those undergoing training.
ProAct offers £2,000 per person for training and a further
£2,000 as a wage subsidy.
Companies looking to apply will need to submit a Business Case
explaining their situation and the need for assistance. If
approved, help to prepare a training plan to assist in the business
recovery will be provided.
They will also need to demonstrate:
- Viability prior to the economic downturn
- Plans to introduce short time working at a minimum of 20% (1
day a week) during the period the training will be under taken
- Have made, or are considering redundancies should they not be
able to secure funding from ProAct.
