Developing professional qualifications
for professional people - IEP offers independent advice and support for members.
The IEP is independent of any awarding body and so can provide independent advice and support. We work with leading sector employers to set the standard for professional industry-recognised, accredited and endorsed qualifications to improve the employability and career progression of members.
Gaining specialist and professional qualifications can have a major impact on an individual’s career. They demonstrate the level of skill and expertise someone has achieved, and prove their commitment to raising their own level of performance. They can help you to stand out from the competition, give you an edge when applying for a new job or promotion, improve your earning potential, help you gain peer recognition.
