The qualifications are valuable stand-alone qualifications for those who plan to work in the Employability Services Sector as well as those currently working in the sector across both public and private provision.


Paul continued “Collaboration has been paramount to the success of the work that has been undertaken and everyone that has been involved has made a vital contribution to ensuring this suite of qualifications meet the needs of the sector professionals”.


Janette Faherty OBE FIEP, Chairperson, Institute of Employability Professionals (IEP), said, “The high level of involvement by employers and learners in developing the qualifications have helped to ensure that they closely reflect the key work undertaken in the sector. ABC Awards provided excellent support and valuable expertise and guidance to the IEP throughout.”
