A review of the IEP Networking Event in London

The IEP played host to an audience from all corners of the employability sector at the recent networking event in North London.

Kindly supported by Red 5 People the event was billed as ‘Celebrating diversity, delivering great opportunities and outcomes’ and featured some fantastic speakers including Sam Windett MIEP from Impetus who presented Impetus’ new research which establishes an ‘employment gap’ between disadvantaged young people and their better-off peers.  Attendees also heard from Andrew Moore MIEP from Prospects Services who presented on the learnings from the Employment Plus programme that supports low-paid and low-skilled employed individuals in London; Jackie Hadfield from Groundwork looked at the key takeaways from delivering multiple employment programmes and maximizing opportunities for clients and Scope’s Guy Chaudoir presented the Scope and Virgin Media,  Work With Me campaign to encourage employers to build more inclusive workplaces for disabled people.

Here’s some feedback from attendees:

"We were really pleased to host our first IEP London networking event.  There was a great line up of speakers with some excellent topics all celebrating diversity and outcomes in the sector – and some great networking and food to add!

James Chessum, Founder/Recruiter, Red 5 People

 

“Great presentations, with lots to think about and learn from, plus excellent opportunities to meet new people.”

David Imber FIEP, The Good Employability Company

 

“Thank you for organising the IEP event last week. I thought it was a really great event and well hosted. Not being an employability professional but interested in working with the sector, it was a great way to see examples of how effectively the sector is working and hear how it is changing.”

William Thompson ACA
