IEP Board Announcements

The IEP is pleased to confirm the appointment of Pat Russell MIEP and Stewart Holdsworth MIEP (Seetec) as Chair and Vice Chair of the Boad of Directors respectively. Pat brings a wealth of experience from a varied career in both the public and private sectors with the Work and Health Unit (DWP) and more recently APM before moving on to private consultancy whilst retaining her long- standing position with the Scout Movement as Chair of Trustees.

Stewart has seen an amazing but well-deserved rise since joining the Board just over a year ago and this is down to his genuine ‘can do’ attitude and his ability to build long-standing relationships through his honesty and integrity. Before Seetec Stewart spent a number of years with Serco and before that with a regional development agency.

The rest of the IEP Board welcome both Pat and Stewart to their new appointments at a time of great excitement for the sector as a whole and Members in particular when they will help steer qualification / standards and accreditation development and the launch of the new Employability Practitioner (Level 4) Standard, plus delivering on a number of international development opportunities.

The sector is really starting to thrive and the IEP will continue to support in its journey to one that is valued, appreciated and supported and where professionalism and excellence are seen as normal everyday practice.

Scott Parkin FIEP, previous IEP Executive Chairman and now Chief Executive Officer said “After 3 years as Chairman it is time for me to take on a new challenge and I look forward to working with both Pat and Stewart to deliver on our obvious opportunity potential for the IEP as its new Chief Executive. I have already witnessed their ability to deliver projects and to forge new and substantiate existing relationships and it always makes the job easier when you have such competent individuals at the helm, it helps even more if they are great people who you want to work with. The next couple of years will be defining for the IEP and the sector and I look forward to working with Pat, Stewart and the rest of the IEP Board to achieve our ambitions.”
