The Redundancy Action Scheme (ReAct) is a programme of funding for training provided by the Welsh Government for people living in Wales who are facing redundancy. If you’ve been made redundant, or have become unemployed, on or since 1 January 2020 you could be entitled to ReAct funding to retrain or update your skills. If you’ve got a new employer lined up, they too could get funding towards your wages and further training.

Find out more on the Careers Wales website.

Although there are no free NEBOSH course options, we always recommend comparing or contacting multiple Learning Partners before registering. Fees are set by our Learning Partners and can vary based on the qualification, mode of study and level of support provided, among other factors. Some Learning Partners may also offer special promotions or discounts.
