Don’t miss this chance to attend the Employment and Skills Convention 2019 for FREE!

Learning and Work Institute, in association with the IEP, are providing bursaries for three IEP Members to attend the Employment and Skills Convention FREE of charge. 

The event, which takes place at 30 Euston Square, London on 10th July will be addressing the question “Where do we stand in this uncertain landscape and how do we make sure that supporting disadvantaged people into employment remains at the top of the government’s agenda?”

The Employment and Skills Convention will:

  • explore how to grow successful partnerships with employers and skills and employment support providers to increase and improve access to high quality training, apprenticeships and traineeships
  • provide a platform for politicians and senior professionals from public, private and third sector organisations to present the latest developments in policies and delivery
  • present cutting-edge research on employment and skills policy.

More information about the event can be found here

The aim of the IEP Bursary is to provide an opportunity for sector Practitioners who don’t ordinarily get the opportunity to attend industry Conferences to benefit from the Employment and Skills Convention experience. We hope it will provide a beneficial learning, networking and developmental opportunity. The IEP Bursary includes a full delegate package at the Convention, and a special Certificate which will be presented to the winners on the day.

IEP Members wishing to apply for the Bursary can enter by writing a submission, under the title of: ‘Why I should attend the Employment and Skills Convention, and how this will benefit my professional development’.

  • Entries must be a maximum of 500 words in length and be submitted in Microsoft Word format.
  • 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 e-mail to by 12.00noon on Friday 26th April 2019.
  • Please refer to “IEP Bursary” in the subject line.

Eligible IEP members who apply to the Bursary competition, but who are unsuccessful, will still be able to purchase a conference ticket at the listed fee and receive £60 discount (fees range between £125-£270 including discount). There is an early bird rate valid until 23 May. Visit the event website for details
