Community Employment (CE)
Community Employment (C.E.) is an employment programme which helps unemployed people to re-enter the active workforce by breaking their experience of unemployment through a return-to-work routine.
The programme assists them to enhance and develop both their technical and personal skills which can then be used in the workplace.
