At CogniSoft, we are excited to announce our official partnership with IEP (Institute of Employability Professionals) as the ‘Human Fuel’ Partners for the upcoming IEP Basecamp event, taking place on October 5th at Thinktank in Birmingham. As a software development company deeply rooted in the employability sector since 1986, we have a long-standing commitment to empowering practitioners and enhancing the employability landscape across the UK.
Our Legacy in the Employability Sector
For over three decades, CogniSoft has been at the forefront of software development, dedicated to the employability sector. Our flagship product, the Youth and Employment Information System (YETI), has been instrumental in providing comprehensive case and learner management functionality to a wide range of skills, employability, advice, and guidance providers across the UK.
Our association with the IEP extends back many years, where we have played various roles – from sponsors to guests, speakers, and delegates at their events. Our continued involvement reflects our unwavering dedication to both the IEP and the employability sector as a whole.
IEP Basecamp: A Unique Learning Opportunity
IEP Basecamp stands out as the UK employability sector’s inaugural and exclusive event of its kind. It is a day filled with genuine learning, practical takeaways, and networking opportunities, thoughtfully curated for frontline employability practitioners and first-line managers. This event presents a golden opportunity for employability professionals to glean practical insights, expert advice, and stay abreast of the latest trends and best practices to ensure better outcomes for their program participants.
Empowering Practitioners: Our Philosophy
Our Managing Director, Emma Cook FIEP, has been a driving force behind our commitment to the Employability and Skills sector. She shares our company’s philosophy, stating, “CogniSoft is a strong believer in empowering practitioners. Practitioners are the backbone of the sector, dealing with day-to-day challenges and understanding the intricacies of supporting individuals in their journey to secure meaningful employment.”
When we develop systems for our clients, we put the spotlight on the end-users – the frontline practitioners. Our aim is to simplify their tasks, ensuring that they have the tools they need to excel in their roles. This, we believe, is the key to obtaining valuable data and statistics that genuinely make a difference. Empowering frontline practitioners fosters sector growth and progress, ultimately leading to improved outcomes for individuals seeking employment.
Our partnership with IEP Basecamp is a natural extension of this ethos. As ‘Human Fuel’ Partners, we will provide breakfast, morning and break refreshments, as well as the networking lunch, ensuring that all attendees are fuelled, energized, and empowered to actively participate throughout the day.
An Unmissable Opportunity
IEP Basecamp promises an unparalleled opportunity to network with peers, learn from fellow practitioners, and gain valuable insights into the future of employability practice. It’s an event that should not be missed, and we encourage all employability professionals to stay tuned for more information about the speakers, panel discussions, and seminar topics that will enrich this unique gathering in the days and weeks ahead.
At CogniSoft, we are thrilled to be part of this transformative event and look forward to fostering collaboration, innovation, and empowerment within the employability sector at IEP Basecamp. Together, we can shape a brighter future for all those seeking meaningful employment.
