A very warm welcome to the new IEP Journal
The aim of this publication is to continue the debate and discussion started at the IEP’s inaugural Summit in March. We want to encourage the presentation of research and ideas to employability professionals everywhere and to increase contact between readers and authors enabling the sharing of good practice.
In line with the IEP’s core objectives, we are seeking to reach all employability professionals by providing an opportunity to discuss important issues with fellow practitioners. We are also positively encouraging and welcoming wider contributions from across the UK and overseas. Our focus, as always, is on enabling professionals to become even better practitioners, offering reading on research, current policy priorities and operational good practice.You can read our full IEP Journal Purpose Statement here and the guidance for authors here. If you would like to comment in response to any of our articles (and we hope you do) please send your messages to IEPJournal@iemployability.org.
We hope you enjoy reading the IEP Journal and we look forward to welcoming you to the IEP Summit on March 4th 2021.
