EP Reaches 75th edition milestone
The IEP’s newsletter EP (Employability Professional) is celebrating its 75th edition. As the profession’s only publication dedicated to frontline employability professionals, EP is reaching approximately 5000 employability professionals across the employment related services sector each and every week.
Ayden Sims, Director of Business Development at Remploy said "Employability Professional is a fantastic tool for sharing and reading about important news and developments within the sector. Rather than a 'general update' newsletter, it regularly contains information that is directly relevant and useful to front line advisors, such as up-coming events, advice on how to engage with specific customer groups and networking opportunities. A highly informative read and certainly contributes to the professionalisation and enhancement of sector."
Regular EP reader, Kayleigh Pegg, Work Choice Manager, North & West London, for Seetec said “I have been receiving EP for a couple of years now and enjoy reading the articles and gaining best practice and ideas from the experts! I always keep my eye out when it comes through and share highlights or suggestions with my team on our morning meetings.
"I was able to attend a ERSA/IEP Working Towards Better Mental Health Conference in June in Birmingham through a bursary, and it was exceptionally helpful and informative. I came back buzzing and got my team motivated with updates and sharing the best practice and connections made on the day. I actually opened EP issue 73 a couple days after it arrived and a couple of my team came to me and said ‘did you read about the WHP contract winners in the EP?’ – it is a great way of keeping in the wider loop of employability.”
EP Editor, IEP’s Heather Ette said “Producing EP each week has been particularly informative for me and enabled me to understand and showcase the great work being carried out by sector providers. It’s also the perfect platform to inform and advise IEP members of the various projects we are taking forward on their behalf and to seek advice and feedback through surveys that are helping us shape the future of the profession with initiatives such as the Employability Apprenticeship Trailblazer. I hope our readers enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy putting it together.”
