Working Towards Better Mental Health’ Conference Bursaries now available for IEP Members

Posted By Heather Ette, 26 April 2017

Bursaries NOW available for IEP Members to attend the joint IEP/ERSA Conference ‘Working Towards Better Mental Health’ Conference

This exciting Conference will take place on 26th June in Birmingham and follows our successful collaboration with ERSA last spring.  The focus this time will be on increasing the knowledge and skills of the employment support sector and provide both policy related and practical examples around supporting jobseekers with mental health problems and other barriers to gaining work, progressing in work and sustaining work.

The aim of the IEP Bursary is to provide an opportunity for sector practitioners to learn and share first-hand information about the new challenges facing our sector with the advent of the Work and Health Programme and to discuss the skills required to support a ‘new’ type of customer. This is also central to the IEP’s vision of empowering individuals to gain relevant knowledge and understanding, building their skills and delivering better outcomes through continued professional development. We hope each bursary will provide a beneficial learning, networking and development opportunity and will provide a forum to share ideas and best practice with colleagues and other peers in the sector.

The IEP Bursary includes a full delegate package at the conference, and a special certificate that will be presented to the winners on the day.

If you have any queries regarding the IEP Bursary 2017 please email

IEP members wishing to apply for the Bursary can enter by writing a submission (of no more than 500 words), under the title of: 

"Why I should attend the IEP/ERSA ‘Working Towards Better Mental Health’ Conference and how this will benefit my professional development"

Entrants must also include their full name, job title, employer’s name, e-mail address, contact phone number, and IEP designation (AIEP or MIEP). Entries must be received by emailing by 5.00pm on Friday 26th May 2017. Please refer to ‘IEP Bursary’ in the subject line of your email.

Eligible IEP members who apply to the Bursary competition, but who are unsuccessful, will still be able to purchase a conference ticket at the special early bird price of £150 plus VAT before 5th June.

Terms & Conditions:

The Bursary is open to any current AIEP or MIEP (Fellows are excluded). Late entries will not be considered. Entries will be judged by a panel from the IEP and ERSA. All entrants will be notified of the outcome of the competition as soon after the closing date as possible.

The panel’s decision will be final, and no correspondence regarding the outcome will be considered. Bursaries must be taken by the winning entrants, and are non-transferable. No alternate prize / cash alternative is available. The Bursary excludes travel to and from the conference venue, the cost of which will need to be covered by the winners, or their employers.

We hope that you decide to enter, and look forward to your submission.
