A News Story

IEP Basecamp 2023.

A great day of learning.

Event | 19 November 2023

IEP Basecamp in Birmingham.

We attended the IEP Basecamp in Birmingham. The conference was the first of its kind in the UK bringing together frontline employability practitioners and first-line managers.

We listened to speakers and panellists from across the employability and skills sector and beyond who shared their knowledge, provided practical learning takeaways, and shared best practice and insight on how to deliver better outcomes for programme participants.

Key takeaways from the day were:

1.     Wellbeing Matters – taking care of your own well-being is critical. As an Employment Advisor, you need to be your best self to be able to support others.
2.     How to support participants with complex needs – the importance of building trusted relationships, using effective communication strategies, innovative approaches, and active listening techniques to offer solutions relevant to the participant.
3.     Challenging stigmas in society – how to empower individuals facing unique challenge such as those with past convictions, diverse neurological traits, or mental health issues and how we can break down barriers and encourage people to open up.
4.     What excellence looks like in the workplace – how to use empathy, active listening, and personalised communication to transform a participant’s employment journey.

The day was informative, thought-provoking and a great chance to network with fellow employability practitioners and partners to share ideas and best practise.
