Community Employment Scheme


We are a host project for the Community employment scheme, run by local councils.

We are a host project for the Community employment scheme, run by local councils. The Community Employment (CE) programme is designed to help people who are long-term unemployed and other disadvantaged people to get back to work by offering part-time and temporary placements in jobs based within local communities. Participants can take up other part-time work during their placement. After the placement, participants are encouraged to seek permanent part-time and full-time jobs elsewhere based on the experience and new skills they have gained while in a Community Employment scheme. The Community Employment programme is administered by the Department of Social Protection (DSP)
Community Employment sponsors - the voluntary organisations or public bodies that manage CE schemes - plan and manage CE placements. They sponsor local or community projects that meet an identified community need.
Since 2013 there is a CE Childcare Training and Development Programme for CE participants who wish to pursue a career in childcare. It is a 3-year programme of formal learning and work experience leading to a NFQ Level 5 qualification in early childhood care and education.
