Managing Work Placement Participants
(Community Employment, TUS, RSS)

This course has been designed to support committee members and voluntary groups who host work placement participants through Community Employment, Rural Social Scheme and TÚS schemes.

The Managing Work Placement Participants course is divided into three core sections of content. These sections reflect the ‘need to know’ aspects of hosting a work placement participant that all boards and committees should consider.

It is worth working through the detail of each section, so that you can better understand the viewpoint of the work placement participant, that of the scheme supervisor or Local Development Company (if applicable) and your own expectations and needs.
