Support for the transport and logistics sector is available and could include the following programmes:
- The ReAct programme. ReAct helps employers who wish to recruit an eligible individual with a wage subsidy of up to £3000. This is paid in 4 instalments over a 12-month period. The programme also awards a job-related training grant of up to 50% of the cost of training. You can also claim up to £1000 per new recruit from ReAct. Visit Business Wales’ React.
- Personal Learning Accounts (PLAs) are also available to employers to help them upskill their staff. PLAs can help businesses stay open, and indeed competitive in the face of Brexit and complications from the Covid-19 pandemic. PLA Courses and qualifications are also endorsed by the Regional Skills Partnerships (RSP) to ensure they meet current or projected skills gaps and regional priority sectors.
