A very useful video about the Community Employment programme. This programme (known as CE) is designed to help people who are long-term unemployed (or otherwise disadvantaged) to get back to work by offering part-time and temporary placements in jobs based within local communities. The video is very informative including contributions from participants, scheme supervisors and lots of insight into the huge range of positions that the scheme can offer.
