Do you have what it takes to become an IEP Fellow?
The Institute of Employability Professionals (IEP) are embarking on an exciting campaign to attract new Fellows (FIEP) to help promote the activities of the IEP and to build a professional sector.
We are increasing our Fellows activities with Fellows Dinners and events being held throughout the country.
Would you like to become an IEP Fellow or have someone in mind you would like to nominate for Fellowship?
Here are the top 5 things you need to know:
- An IEP Fellowship is more than just recognition of your success, it is also a personal commitment to actively furthering the recognition and professionalism of employability services in line with the Institute’s vision and values.
- Every IEP Fellow can demonstrate significant knowledge and experience of employability services gained in many different sectors such as housing, justice, education and welfare to work. They are all recognised by colleagues as a ’go to’ person for advice and support and admired by those outside their organisation with whom they come into contact.
- IEP Fellows are not just senior executives from well-known organisations, they include self-employed individuals, members of the voluntary and public sector and people with specialist expertise working on the front line of employability services.
- However experienced they are IEP Fellows are committed to both continuing to build their own skills and knowledge and also to encouraging and supporting others to do so too.
- IEP Fellows are proud of the economic and social contribution employability professionals make every day and go above and beyond their own day to day job roles to increase that impact and encourage more people to choose employability as a professional career.
If you believe you match these criteria complete our on-line application remembering that it is only what you write in that application that will be assessed when considering you for Fellowship - so make sure you provide comprehensive responses in each section.
The IEP is determined that FIEP is widely recognised as a mark of accomplishment and professional distinction so not every application makes it through first time but advice and encouragement is always available to help build the extra knowledge and experience to successfully re-apply in the future.
