We were delighted to welcome a great turnout of members and non-members alike at the IEP North West Group which staged its first regional group meeting on 19 June 2015 in Preston.
Attendees heard from a range of speakers including IEP’s Declan Swan and Tracy Fishwick from Volition. Linda Hayworth from Duality delivered a CPD Taster session on Effective Case Management.
We were really pleased to sign up new members at the event and we also received some great feedback from members who cited networking, sharing best practice and job opportunities as top reasons to be members of IEP.
Members also gave us some great ideas on how to improve the value of our service to members. Suggestions included ways we could help staff deliver better quality services to job seekers and how we could promote regular sector health checks by asking members for ideas on what is happening in the industry on different issues such as commissioning.
