St. Canices Community Employment Training Ltd is a Community Employment Scheme whose main objective is to provide training opportunities and work experience to unemployed people experiencing difficulties preventing them from returning or entering the labour market.

Our aim is to utilise the Community Employment Trainee positions to support the efforts of communities and supporting organisations to develop socially and community beneficial projects that support families, adults, children, the unemployed and local neighbourhoods.

Over the life of our Community Employment Schemes hundreds of people have received training and moved on to full-time employment, part-time employment or further education opportunities. Many of them are now employed as part of the Childcare, IT Training or other Education and Social Enterprises now operating from the Fr.McGrath Centre or our outreach projects.

St. Canices Community Employment Training Ltd. has been operating FAS Community Employment Schemes since January 2005. Trainees gain valuable work experience, complete a variety of employment enhancement training and help serve and support hundreds of Kilkenny Families and Children with high support needs in marginalised housing areas in the City.
The Community Employment Trainees gain work experience and training in the following areas: Childcare Community I.T. Office Support Project Worker Maintenance/Caretaker After Schools Programmes Homework Club
