The ERSA Annual Conference
Declan Swan, Director of the IEP, talks about our progress so far at the ERSA Annual Conference on the 3rd of December. He explains how IEP is already helping employability professionals and outlines future plans for the body.
The driving force behind professionalisation...
The Welfare to Work 2012 Convention was a big event for the Institute of Employability Professionals (IEP) where it was officially launched on Wednesday 11th July.
The response and the interest shown have been great and we would like to thank all parties involved for their fantastic input and enthusiasm.
Jo Carter MIEP was one of the first individuals to take up the opportunity to pursue a professional qualification for employability professionals which were launched in 2011. Jo was one of the first members to be interviewed by Lord Jim Knight about IEP.
Declan Swan, Director of IEP, said "The launch and development of IEP offers an opporunity to deliver a real step change in the quality of support the employment services industry can provide. The Institute will be the driving force behind the professionalisation of the employment services sector so that it is recognised as a credible industry that is able to meet the needs of jobseekers and others. We would very much like to hear from individuals working in the industry who wish to play their part in helping us to achieve this vision.
Over the next year members can expect the IEP to develop a suite of membership services to support their continued professional development, arrange networking opportunities and raise the profile of the sector by promoting best practice."
An exciting initiative
The Minister for Employment Chris Grayling said“ I welcome the level of support given to the Institute by the providers in the sector. Ultimately we would hope that everyone working within the Employability sector would want to be a member of their own professional body and to play a part in the development of this exciting initiative.”
