IEP'S Corporate Affiliate Partners

Posted: 28.06.2021

Welcome North Wales Training, our new Corporate Affiliate Partners.

IEP are delighted to announce that North Wales Training have joined IEP as our latest Corporate Affiliate Partners.

North Wales Training is the leading provider of training and apprenticeships in North Wales and a subsidiary of Grŵp Llandrillo Menai, the largest education provider in Wales. It was founded in 1983 and recently launched in England through ‘Copa Apprenticeships’. It’s active in the development and delivery of the full range of employability services and schemes, pursuing a mission that all its leaners succeed whether they be aged 16 or 65.

Its senior team have this to say about becoming an IEP Affiliate Partner:

We’re thrilled to have joined the IEP family and regret that it’s taken us this long. Since the IEP represents two of the values we are most passionate about: employability and working collaboratively.

Successfully empowering learners to develop themselves and go on and enjoy rewarding jobs and careers is not only our people’s key driver, it binds us together as a team and is one of the reasons many of our team have stayed with us so long. We’re proud of our track record and the contribution the employability sector makes which we feel has been too long under-valued.

Working collaboratively has got us where we are today. By identifying win-wins and building and maintaining constructive relationships with government, education providers, employers and learners we’ve been able to leverage our strengths and achieve far, far, more than if we tried to do things alone. It’s the key to success.

Winston Churchill said “Never let a good crisis go to waste”. The pandemic has been a bad one. We nevertheless believe it offers our profession an opportunity to come out from under the shadows and attract the recognition it deserves. To us the IEP is the best body to do that and bring us together as practitioners. We’re really looking forward to learning, collaborating and sharing best practice with fellow members.

It’s time to put employability on the map. Let’s show the rest of the UK the employability profession is good for business – literally.
