  • IEP are excited to announce the details of this year’s Digital Technology Conference.

Following the success of our last year’s event IEP are delighted to once again be bringing you the IEP Digital Technology Conference, sponsored by our partners Cognisoft, a leading provider of web-based software solutions for government funded training, employability and skills providers across England, Scotland and Wales. CogniSoft has worked alongside the employability sector since 2000 and have an in-depth understanding of the issues providers face in delivering employability programmes. The experience and knowledge they will be bringing to the conference in relation to technological advances available to our sector will be a key component of the conference content and we are delighted that they are supporting our event as Headline Sponsors.

Held online over 5 days between the 19th and 23rd September this FREE event is a must-do for anyone currently working in employability and skills or who are interested in joining our sector, offering an ideal opportunity for practitioners and employers to come together to learn and network.

We have a packed agenda full of expert speakers who will discuss and present their ideas on technological advances and current challenges to help you understand and identify your own skill gaps and how to address them.

The event will feature five key themes:

  • Collaboration
  • Employability and Skills
  • Inclusion
  • Sustainability
  • Continuous Improvement

You can book for all sessions or simply the sessions you are most interested in. Each session is an hour long and each day will host a 30-minute networking event where you can meet up with colleagues, discuss and debate topics and get involved.

There’s no need to attend each day or even each session each day – simply register for the individual sessions of your choice, on the days of your choice and book it in your diary. If you are part of the employability sector and want to learn new skills to better support your clients there really isn’t a better opportunity than this.

Register for the Conference today and we’ll send you a link to download the Whova app to view the itinerary as it unfolds, pose questions for speakers, view the exhibitor booths, network and start being part of the conversation in the lead up to the event!
