A Year of Progress
By Scott Parkin FIEP, IEP Chair
This has been a year of change for the IEP and I’m extremely proud of what we have achieved.
We have built on our relationships with partners, delivering on collaborative initiatives such as the Health and Work joint conference with ERSA in March and a series of educational webinars with AELP.
In June we were asked to provide evidence on the future of Job Centre Plus to the Work and Pensions Select Committee and submitted a detailed and comprehensive report.
This was a golden opportunity to promote the benefits of sharing our resources across the employability sector as a whole and we will continue to follow up, further strengthening our relationship with the DWP and enhancing our reputation with policy makers.
Being part of the IEP is now very much a partnership. It’s about what we can do for each other. There are many benefits to be gained for the whole sector by working with us. In supporting the IEP organisations and their staff can derive real value from a range of opportunities that will enable all to be confident in delivering different services to a new and more complex group of people.
We are committed to building a programme for the future that provides value for our individual members and we are looking forward to continuing our focus on the frontline initiative, to better equip Advisors with the tools they need to deliver better outcomes for all.
