The Welsh Government is investing in jobs, skills and training to help businesses grow and meet the needs of Wales’ changing economic landscape and build a stronger, fairer and greener economic future.
To ensure that as many businesses as possible are able to access the financial support and expert advice available, we’re supporting the Welsh Government’s ‘We’re in Your Corner’ campaign to raise awareness of the wide range of skills, employability programmes and free advice available to all Welsh businesses.
Support is available through Business Wales to help businesses…
- Recruit staff and train them in the specific skills they need (Apprenticeships, ReAct/ReAct+, Traineeships, GO Wales, Community Employability Programmes and Jobs Growth Wales+)
- Upskill their existing workforce to support business survival, growth and development (Personal Learning Accounts, Apprenticeships, Wales Union Learning Fund)
- Support the health and wellbeing of their workforce (In-Work Support Service, Out of Work Service, Healthy Working Wales)
- Create a more equal and inclusive workforce through attracting, recruiting, developing and retaining disabled employees (Disabled People’s Employment Champions, Online Toolkit, Inclusive Apprenticeships, Access to Work and Disability Confident)
This year, the Welsh Government is launching two new programmes, Jobs Growth Wales+ and ReAct+, which will support businesses to grow through a combination of expert advice, training grants and wage subsidies.
These programmes form part of the Welsh Government’s ambitious Young Person’s Guarantee, through which businesses are being supported to create new opportunities for young people under the age of 25 to join their team.
If you feel your business could benefit from accessing this support, head to Business Wales for more information or call 03000 6 03000 to speak with an expert adviser.
