What is a Community Employment Scheme

The Community Employment (CE) programme (also known as the ‘CE Scheme’) is an employment programme that offers those unemployed the opportunity to return to a working environment. The community employment scheme offers a unique opportunity to return to a working environment in a diverse and vibrant setting. The CE scheme offers many training opportunities, work experience and allows participants to grain employment related skills.

Throughout a placement, all participants are encouraged to re skill or update their existing skills to enhance their prospects for employment on leaving the scheme.
