About the Community Empowerment Co-operative Consortium
The Community Empowerment Co-operative Consortium consists of the charity (Community Empowerment Limited) and other not-for-profit organisations, collectively delivering a range of support and training for co-operatives, social enterprises and charities within the UK and for schools & colleges throughout the European Union.

We give people the tools to take control of their future and that of their communities.

We champion mutual self-help i.e. people supporting each other to achieve shared aims. We help people to improve their employability. We offer a range of courses for those wishing to improve their professional skills and career opportunities.

Our courses for E.U. students include an introduction to the UK marketplace, whether for potential employment within the UK, or employment in other E.U. countries that trade with the UK.



We offer a range of bespoke employability courses which can be adapted to suit the needs of clients.

This leaflet outlines the key elements that form the basis of these courses.


Knowledge about the UK market place, working in the UK or working in EU countries that trade with the UK.

Awareness of the importance of company research and understanding the needs of the potential employer.

Improved confidence in applying for appropriate positions together with an understanding of “selling themselves” to prospective employers.

Self Knowledge – an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses.
