The study presents findings on the effectiveness and impact of the project.

The Skills Growth Wales (SGW) programme as a whole (including ProAct) was successful in assisting 527 employers, higher than the target of 500. It was also successful in training 30,835 employees, higher than forecast (27,037). A total of 16,419 employees achieved qualifications, also higher than anticipated (15,982).

SGW training resulted in employees improving their knowledge and skills as well as learning new things that were relevant to their jobs. Almost all employers reported having a better skilled workforce because of participation in SGW.

Without SGW, just over half of employers would have delivered similar training but over a longer period, while just under a half would have delivered shorter or cheaper training as an alternative.
