Employability People

Posted By Heather Ette, 15 June 2017

Welcome David Evans, Our New Fellow

The IEP is delighted to welcome David Evans FIEP as our latest Fellow.

Speaking of his new Fellowship David said:

“Being a Fellow of the IEP is an honour and a responsibility. The impact of our sector is significant – immeasurably improving the lives of individuals and communities at best, but being a restrictive and negative influence at worst. This is why the IEP is so important. We interact with and are responsible for helping people who are at times demotivated and vulnerable. It’s our job to make sure the service we offer is always positive, always honest and always individually focused on getting the best outcome of each and every person we help. Almost all of the colleagues I talk to on a daily basis agree that the work we do is not just a job, it’s a vocation.

Our developing industry

As our industry develops, it’s really important that we develop as quickly. Two things come to mind – professionalisation and integration. The services we deliver are so important and therefore ensuring we have the most up to date professional skills goes hand in hand with delivering best practice. Equally, we constantly see the value of integrated services and how important it is to pull together for the benefit of the people who need it. This isn’t always easy, with political, financial and bureaucratic considerations often impacting on the ability to integrate delivery but we must find ways to offer people a service which addresses as many of their needs as possible in one ‘space’.

The role of the IEP and its Fellows

The IEP has never been more needed than it is now. The great thing is it has a wealth of amazing talent in its membership with the skills and experience to ensure people at all levels in our industry have access to all kinds of support. Being a member affords people the opportunity to access that support. Being a fellow is a big responsibility and I hope I can add something to help drive our industry, and the people we help, forward."

IEP Chairman Scott Parkin FIEP said of David’s Fellowship “David has a wealth of experience of working to positively impact individuals and communities in the UK and Internationally. He has sought to impact policy through political and social engagement particularly in Wales, where he has worked to bring together employability and skills policies between national and regional government.  This kind of knowledge and experience will be hugely beneficial to the IEP as we seek to forge closer relationships with partners here and overseas and we very much look forward to working to further the IEP’s mission together.”
