ProAct – Skills Growth Wales
What is Skills Growth Wales?
It is a training scheme designed to help companies who are in a position of growth which needs support for training. Support will be given for the cost of training where the company can demonstrate that the funding will enable development over and above what is currently planned, where growth will be bigger, faster etc. The scheme is a selective scheme – not all companies will be successful at application.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Companies must demonstrate that they are inherently viable
What funding is available?
We will fund an average of £3,000 per individual for training – this will be based on actual costs of provision per individual. We are able to be flexible with this to maximise the funding available to a company for training eg. If some of your employees need a training course that costs £1,500 and others need a course costing £4,500 we would be prepared to consider this on a case by case basis as long as the funding overall equates to a maximum of £3,000 per employee.
How do I apply?
The application process is in two stages. The initial stage requires the completion of a business case to demonstrate eligibility and indicate why you are applying for support. The second stage is the preparation of a detailed training plan which requires a full breakdown for each employee who is to be supported under Skills Growth Wales. Advice and guidance on both stages will be provided if you decide to apply. Due to European Social Fund legislation there are very specific requirements needed as part of the application process and this can be a time consuming activity if you identify large numbers for training.
You can either speak to your DE&T relationship manager if you have one, or contact the Hotline on 0845 60 661 60 to register your interest and be provided with the necessary forms.
Who are the Relationship Managers and Human Resource Development (HRD) advisors?
Relationship Managers are part of the Welsh Assembly Governments Department for Economy and Transport. They are already working with a wide range of businesses in various sectors to provide business support and will where appropriate, direct eligible businesses to the ProAct scheme. They will also provide some help to the business in completing stage one of the process and may provide additional information to the panel to assist with the decision making process if necessary.
HRD advisors are external to the Welsh Assembly Government but are usually paid by us for their work with companies to identify what training needs the company has, and help them source suitable providers to deliver the training. The HRD advisors are required to consider a range of providers both private and FE based to meet the employer needs.
