New Job Support Wales Programme shelved

The Welsh Government has confirmed that it will not be continuing with the planned new Job Support Wales Programme. The programme was due to begin delivery in April and aimed to amalgamate the five Welsh Government Employability initiatives into a single tailored offer.

Ken Skates, the Minister for Economy and Transport announced the decision in a written statement. The existing initiatives - including ReAct, Job Growth Wales, Access, Traineeships and the Employability Skills Programme - have been extended and will remain open to people as normal.
