Don’t miss this chance to attend Work in Progress 2018 for free!

After the great success of last year, Carley Consult, in association with the IEP, are providing bursaries for three IEP Members to attend Work in Progress free of charge. Now in its fourth year, Work in Progress is the alternative annual employment, skills and health conference taking place at Doncaster Racecourse on Wednesday 25th April 2018.

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 Work in Progress experience. We hope it will provide a beneficial learning, networking and developmental opportunity. The IEP Bursary includes a full delegate package at the conference, and a special certificate which will be presented to the winners on the day.

Last year’s Bursary winners were Stephanie Palmer-Odeh MIEP and Samantha Everard AIEP. This is what they had to say about receiving their bursaries:

“It really was a great event! Wonderful setting, good food, the Talking Tables became a space that you could share ideas and think about ways of working differently to improve outcomes and routes to success for ourselves and clients. Massive thanks to Carley Consult for putting on the event and offering the bursary, it did achieve the objective of getting staff in the industry that wouldn't usually have the opportunity to attend such events the chance and I am so grateful for the opportunity. This time it was me, next time it could be you!"

Stephanie Palmer-Odeh MIEP

"To be sat in a room with so many professionals was an amazing opportunity for me and one that I would love to repeat.  As well as learning from the speakers and the hosts of the Talking Tables, I found the networking with industry specialists was one of the highlights of the day. I am really pleased that I took the time to apply for the bursary as the knowledge and contacts I have made will help us deliver a better service to our clients and I also have people that I can discuss ideas with in the future".

Samantha Everard AIEP
