With recent news from local companies such as Brains Brewery of jobs under threat and pending redundancies on the horizon, we have written this blog to signpost accessible opportunities that are available to you here in Wales if you are made redundant.
Being made redundant can be a time of great stress and unease. On the plus side however, it can open up new and exciting opportunities for you – you could be right around the corner from a whole new career change. Is it possible that you might want to retrain or add to your existing skillset?
In fact, one of our trainers received funding to retrain after an injury prevented her to continue her career as a nurse. After taking her training with Ajuda through funding, she became one of our brilliant regular tutors. Receiving funding helped her to develop both her career and as a person.
Been made redundant? How funding from the Welsh Government can help you through your redundancy: ReAct.
The Redundancy Action Scheme (ReAct) is a programme of funding for training provided by the Welsh Government for people facing redundancy who live or work in Wales. If you have been made redundant in the last 3 months and are currently unemployed, or, are currently under notice of redundancy, you will be eligible to ReAct funding. You are entitled to £1,500 worth of training to upskill or retrain to help you become employed. Additional funding can also be accessed to help towards extra costs associated with training such as, travel, accommodation, and childcare. This is only available to you if you have not undertaken any publicly funded training since being made redundant.
Ajuda Ltd specialise in providing training to individuals to increase their employment prospects. Every place of work requires or would highly benefit from employing somebody trained in first aid, fire safety, customer service and more. Furthermore, like our trainer, you could pursue a fulfilling career as a trainer. We offer a full range of accredited training to suit your individual needs. Each training programme can be individually tailored to ensure each individual has the best possible chance of regaining future employment.
