IEP Networking Travels to the North East

Following a number of successful Networking Events in Manchester, Newport, Bolton, Birmingham, Sheffield and London, the IEP are delighted to be running our first ever Networking Event in Durham.

Entitled ‘Using digital technology to achieve better delivery, learning and assessment’, the event is kindly hosted by Education Development Trust and sponsored by The Digital College and takes place on 9th April at Ramside Park, Carville, Durham.

Despite the growth of online learning, digital assessment remains a much under-utilised area that could make learning and qualifications much more accessible and help answer the country’s skills gap.  We are delighted to have Matt Kingswood, CEO of IEP Corporate Affiliate Partner The Digital College, presenting on this issue, discussing the challenges and options available today in our ever growing digital world.

Also presenting at the event will be Scott Parkin FIEP to provide an update on the IEP’s progress and the Education Development Trust who joined the IEP as Corporate Affiliate Partners in 2018. Education Development Trust have been a leading careers service provider in the UK for over 20 years, bridging the gap between education, training and employment.  They have been delivering the National Careers Service in the North East on behalf of the UK government since 2004. Education Development Trust's presentation will focus on how digital tools are embedded in all aspects of their contract delivery to ensure they are meeting the needs of theircustomers and delivering full contract compliance. Attendees will gain an insight into the challenges of using digital tools with customers who are not digitally able and how this can be overcome.

The event offers ample opportunity to network with colleagues and peers and build new contacts with other IEP members and the wider Employability profession. Alongside this great learning content there will be refreshments provided.
