1000 Employability Practitioners awarded IEP Accredited Sector Induction Certificate

Written by IEP

IEP are delighted to announce that we have now distributed 1000 certificates and digital badges to practitioners all across the UK.

This accredited programme, developed in partnership with sector leaders Seetec Pluss and 2Simply Learn has received a fantastic response from employers who have been keen to sign up new staff members enabling them to quickly develop the skills they need to support participants. The programme has also been very well received amongst practitioners who have not previously had a formal sector induction and those who see it as an ideal refresher for improving their overall knowledge even after working in the sector for some time.
 
The IEP Accredited Sector Induction offers a unique opportunity for employability practitioners to undertake a series of informative modules that provide solid sector knowledge and advice on how to practice in the employability sector. On completion of the Induction learners receive a Certificate to confirm that the holder has met the standards required to operate effectively within the employability sector and a digital badge to identify them as an accredited practitioner, as recommended by the Institute of Employability Professionals. 
 
Learners far and wide have taken to social media to show their pride at receiving their certificates and we are amazed at the enthusiasm from all participants;
