The future of work: jobs and skills in 2030 and
navigating the challenges ahead
Speakers: Lesley Giles and Peter Glover, UKCES
What could the world of work look like in 2030? Which skills will be in greatest demand?
Will the jobs of today still exist? It is not possible to predict the future but we can try to
make systematic sense of the direction of travel in the labour market and highlight the key
uncertainties that we know exist, in order to provide a picture of the future that can inform
reflection and debate. This session provides an insight into the future and the implications
for education providers, employers, policy-makers and individuals. Come to this session for
a fascinating picture of what the future may hold, and how we can navigate the challenges
which may lie ahead.

Housing and Employment: joining services, accessing
communities and leveraging funding that others cannot
reach
Chairs: Lynsey Boother and Jenny Allen, National Housing Federation
Speakers: Martin Hancock and Hannah Allen, BCHA, Steve Swan, Open Field
(Employment, Enterprise, Training and Skills) and Anthony Waddington, Participate
Projects
Housing associations account for some of the largest ‘social businesses’ in the UK. They’re
in a strong position to develop local employment and skills services, join forces with other
agencies on the ground and leverage a variety of funding and borrowing options to support
programmes that are not commonly available to all. Taken together, do these conditions
create a unique opportunity for housing and employment services to combine across
localities and communities, maximising wellbeing and employment chances for all? Join
this session to hear from innovative, ambitious and active housing association employers
at the forefront of leveraging local opportunities, funding and partnerships to bring better
outcomes to a wider cross section of the communities in which they serve.
Location: Hall 1C (250)

A vision for 2020: Beyond the Work Programme – what
next for employment services?
Speaker: Stephen Evans, Working Links
We are less than a year away from a general election and attention is now turning to what
future employment programmes should look like. One thing is for certain, there will be
less money available. This session sets out proposals for a new approach to programme
commissioning and delivery, including, greater local commissioning to reduce centralisation;
greater customer choice to drive increased diversity of provision; focus on and progression
from low pay in addition to sustained employment. Discussion of these proposals will be
informed by Working Links’ experience of delivering employment, skills and justice services,
and trials of new delivery approaches.
Location: Room 4A (90)

Improving employment support for people aged 50 plus:
what works and what needs to change?
Speakers: Christopher Brooks, Age UK and Sarah Foster, Inclusion
Older people who are out of work face significant barriers in the labour market. This session
will report the findings of new Age UK research, conducted by Inclusion, which explored
the gap in employment outcomes for older people and the reasons why older people
may experience less effective support. The session will highlight identified best practice
and explore how employment support for older people provided by Work Programme
Providers, VCSOs and Jobcentre Plus could be improved in the future. It will also provide an
opportunity to discuss views on some of the policy proposals emerging from the research
findings.
Location: Room 4B (90)

Improving benefit take-up and the role of welfare to
work providers
Speaker: Professor Dan Finn, University of Portsmouth
Almost a third of eligible people are not claiming the benefits or tax credits to which they
are entitled, including many who are in low paid or part time employment. This session
considers findings from a JRF sponsored evidence review on why take-up is low and
what can be done about it. It will assess the role of local take-up services with evidence
which suggests that facilitating in-work benefit take-up can assist with the transition into
employment and may improve employment sustainability. Participants will be encouraged to
discuss what British welfare to work providers already do, and could do, to promote benefit
take-up.
Location: Room 13 (63)

Social enterprises as stepping stone employment
opportunities
Speakers: Richard Clifton and Gemma Hope, Shaw Trust
Shaw Trust launch their new report showcasing how social enterprises are ideally placed
to offer stepping stone employment opportunities to help people facing disadvantage to
get into work. The session explores how such opportunities can give people the chance
to gain skills, qualifications and work experience crucial to helping them to move into
sustainable employment. It draws upon Shaw Trust’s own experience of running stepping
stone employment programmes in their social enterprise projects and invites others to
share stories of best practice highlighting how social enterprises can use stepping stone
employment to help unemployed people in their communities.
Location: Room 14 (49)

Work Clubs: forgotten former flavour of the month, or a
hidden gem for tackling local unemployment?
Speaker: Jim Carley, Carley Consult Ltd
With so much debate on the Work Programme, other Get Britain Working measures have
struggled to grab the limelight. Little is known about how Work Clubs have been organised,
funded and structured, and whether they are making any difference to local unemployment.
In 2013, Central Bedfordshire Council commissioned Carley Consult to evaluate its Work
Club delivery, contrasting the approach to that of neighbouring authorities, and those from
further afield. The conclusions showed clear pros and cons from the Work Club experience.
This session will share these findings, and add to the debate on delivering employment
services in a localised context.
Location: Room 12 (64)

IEP “Knowledge College” taster: Understanding
contract termination
Speakers: Penny Bygrave and Paul Voller, BDB LLP
The Institute of Employability Professionals (IEP) is evolving. Responding to the wishes
of our members, the next year will be filled with opportunities to join fellow professionals
in CPD accredited sessions about challenging operational issues. In this taster session
of what’s to come in our forthcoming CPD programme the IEP, in partnership with
solicitors Bircham Dyson Bell, will tackle the Legal and Contractual nature of Supply Chain
Management and in particular the issue of contract termination.
The session will discuss:
zzmethods of contract determination
zzidentifying breaches giving rise to a right of termination and service of notices; automatic
rights of termination – what constitutes ‘material breach’
zzdealing with the insolvency of a sub–contractor
zzconsequences of termination, including claw–back provisions, return of property and
payment of outstanding invoices
zzobligations that continue post termination, including rights of audit and inspection and
duty of confidentiality
Participants will contribute to a hands on workshop where a case study will be analised.
Feedback from the session will be analysided to assess if this is the kind of support our
membership wants and needs.
Location: Room 7 (32)

The Work Programme from the perspective of
customers with a health condition
Speakers: Andrew MacFarlane and Joanne Canning, Condition Management Partners
Let Condition Management Partners take you on a journey through the Work Programme
from the perspective of an ESA customer. In this interactive multi-media session you will
experience what it is like to feel symptoms, see and hear about customer perceptions and
experiences directly from Work Programme customers. The session will explore whether
this mirrors the perceptions and experiences of Work Programme advisers. Learn about
the latest evidence base for what really works in supporting people with health conditions
towards an employment outcome, and let us share with you our lessons learnt through our
12 years experience of developing and implementing Condition Management Programmes.

Reducing entrenched unemployment in Brent by
simplifying ‘the system’ for residents
Speakers: Kamini Sanghani and Daniel Quirke, Brent Council
As unemployment reduces in Brent, and some communities
flourish, residents in our most deprived areas are facing further
exclusion against a backdrop of welfare reforms and budget cuts.
During 2013, while the overall Benefit Cap was applied to 1,200
household in Brent, the Navigator pilot was achieving a job start
rate of 46 percent with 94 percent sustainability for people with
5
complex constraints into employment. In this session, Brent Council’s Employment and
Enterprise Service Manager will present what worked on the pilot and how we will apply
this in an innovative approach to place-based working, using Community Budgets where
possible.

Working Well: Greater Manchester’s approach to
supporting long term ESA claimants into sustained
employment
Speakers: Jenny Dibden, Department for Work and Pensions and Matt Ainsworth,
Greater Manchester Combined Authority
Tackling persistent worklessness is one aspect of Greater Manchester’s public service
reform programme, which aims to sustainably reduce public spending and support
economic growth by supporting residents to be independent and self-reliant; so that the
need for public spending is less. Working Well is a new programme that is supporting
Employment Support Allowance (ESA) work-related activity claimants into sustained
employment. The scheme, which has been co-designed and co-funded between Greater
Manchester and Government, has been built around a key worker model, giving providers
the freedom to innovate and design their services in the most effective and efficient way
possible. We hope that the robust evaluation of the programme will
help to inform future national policy decisions.
Location: Room 4A (90)

Working with employers to reduce in work poverty
across different ethnic groups
Speakers: Helen Barnard, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Omar Khan, The Runnymede
Trust and Maria Hudson, Hudson Research
Tackling in work poverty and reducing dependence on in work benefits requires more
people to sustain work and progress to jobs with more hours and better pay. A major barrier
to this is the nature of the jobs on offer and the lack of opportunities for low paid workers.
This is especially true for people in some ethnic minority groups. This session will focus
on how employers can improve prospects for low paid workers; and how Welfare to Work
providers, Local Enterprise Partnerships and Local Authorities can work together to shape
local economies and encourage employers to make these changes.
Location: Room 4B (90)
15
Globalisation in welfare to work: modern challenges,
new solutions, and what emerging markets can teach us
Speaker: Chris Melvin, PublicCo
This presentation is your opportunity to hear the latest developments in global welfare to
work markets. PublicCo works in both established and emerging welfare to work sectors
globally, meaning we are uniquely placed to report on the range of challenges in different
markets, and the tailored solutions needed to tackle unemployment around the world.
Emerging markets are looking to learn best practice from countries with established welfare
to work sectors. However, this presentation will include a unique perspective, taking a look
at the lessons established markets can also learn from new markets.
Location: Room 13 (63)
16
Bridging the gap between local providers and local and
national government
Speaker: Alex Stevenson, G4S
The biggest challenge for getting the third sector and local and national government
working together is getting them to directly interact. Third sector delivery organisations
often struggle to be heard in Whitehall. Whilst they may be heard at a local government
level, local government have little formal influence in directing IntoWork services
commissioned within central government. The Prime contractor is the only organisation
that directly interacts with each of these bodies and can therefore act as a conduit through
which effective collaboration can take place.

From uneasy bedfellows to integral partners: the
changing face of the welfare to work market’s
relationship with recruitment agencies
Speakers: Allan Allison, Seetec and Warren Bennett, Assist Workforce
From uneasy bedfellows, to integral partners – Seetec and Assist Workforce will explore
the changing face of the Welfare to Work market’s relationship with recruitment agencies.
The piece will be told from both sides – looking at the evolution of trust from large-scale
recruitment agencies in the preparedness of W2W customers; and the perception of welfare
to work providers in agencies’ ability to provide sustainable employment. We ask the
question:
“Is the success of welfare to work reliant on engagement with agencies, and what role will
employment agencies have in the success of Welfare programmes into the future, including
Work Programme round two?”
Location: Room 12 (64)
18
VCSE providers have a vital role and can flourish
delivering employment services
Speaker: Michael O’Toole, Crown Representative for the VCSE Sector
The presentation will look at different models of delivery for VCSEs and highlight the
opportunities that can be found in public sector employability services, while recognising
the pitfalls. Using examples of success, the session will challenge our sector to maximise
the massive and often unique value VCSEs can deliver.
Location: Room 7 (32)

Speakers: Tracy Fishwick, Transform Lives Company and Chris Norris, NESTA
Find out how we blend mainstream with innovation to create a truly personal and effective
programme. This is volunteering with a twist: find out how and why it works for the 50
percent who secure jobs, including those who have not gained work through the Work
Programme. Partnerships are key; Jobcentre Plus, councils, employers, colleges, volunteers
in business etc. Set to scale up with the support of NESTA ,our new national charity will
moblise this innovative approach across UK Cathedrals.

in employment support for disabled people
Speaker: David Imber, Vocational Rehabilitation Consultants Ltd
Selling the medicine or the wrapper? International evidence and decades of experience
expalins what works and what skills are needed for success in
employment programmes.

Self efficacy predicts success and identifies need. Matching people and jobs minimises
risk. Labour market competence skills also matter. The ‘helping relationship’ supports
action, motivation, decisions, practice and confidence. The ‘black box’ concept stifles
innovation. This session explores the use of needs-based eligibility and specialist provision
to help make clients labour market competent. Research and qualifications will help but the
methods, ethics, and results adopted here count for more. Come and find out what works.

Tackling Entrenched Worklessness: approaches and
trials to overcome a way of life
Speakers: Darren Nuttall and James Watson, Department for Work and Pensions
Tackling Entrenched Worklessness and promoting Social Investment are integral parts of
Department for Work and Pension’s Social Justice Strategy. Entrenched Worklessness
is where worklessness has become a well-established and deep rooted way of life.
To understand more about Entrenched Worklessness, we are developing a number of
scoping exercises. The evidence base, showing the benefits of using Social Investment
to address complex social problems is building. Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) can unlock
new funding streams and create opportunities for local delivery whilst bringing greater
business discipline through the involvement of private sector investors. These presentations
introduce delegates to Entrenched Worklessness and DWP’s experience of SIBs.
Location: Hall 1B (250)

Welfare to work devolution: lessons from other OECD
countries
Speaker: Professor Dan Finn, University of Portsmouth
There has been much debate on the decentralisation of British welfare to work provision
with many arguing that it would improve policy effectiveness and better adapt ‘mainstream’
employment and skills policies to local conditions. This session reviews findings from
research commissioned by JRF on lessons that can be drawn from the experience of
welfare to work devolution in other OECD countries, including Canada, the USA, Germany
and Denmark. It will consider, in particular, how welfare to work devolution in Britain might
contribute to future poverty reduction strategies.

Specialist programme, specialist provider and how to
replicate the success in mainstream programmes
Speakers: Steve Hawkins, Paul Hanman, Pluss and John Flynn Wiltshire Police
Specialist employment programmes have been proven to deliver results. This session
will enable the audience to learn from Pluss, a high-performing prime contractor for the
Department for Work and Pension’s disability employment programme Work Choice, about
what works from both employer and customer perspectives, and how this success can be
replicated within non-specialist employment programmes. This session features Wiltshire
Police talking about how they have improved diversity of employment, and a powerful
personal perspective from a disabled jobseeker.
Location: Room 4A (90)
24
Opening up new and inspiring careers for unemployed
young people: the Creative Employment Programme
Speakers: Tracy Fishwick, Transform Lives Company, Daniel Williams, CC Skills
The creative sector is typified by employers who, on the whole, attract graduates who often
rely on free internship positions to get in to the sector. The Arts Council recognised that
this is an issue and secured Big Lottery funding to focus on recruiting unemployed young
people in to jobs and apprenticeships, opening up a wide variety of new and inspiring
careers for young people. Find out how the programme works, employers’ experiences
and how young people are benefiting from the opportunity. See how councils, employers,
colleges and intermediaries are making this work on the ground and how new employer
consortia have generated more jobs by working in collaboration. With funding still available,
find out also how you can get involved.
Location: Room 4B (90)
25
Informed choice: the understanding of job availability,
skills requirements and salary expectations can help
job seekers of all ages in their planning of a career path
Speakers: Malcolm Stirling, Declan Trezise Monster and Lovedeep Vaid, Inclusion
Through a demonstration of the new LaMP product co-designed between Monster and
Inclusion this session will evidence the impact that an understanding of the local economy
can have for jobseekers, programme deliverers and commissioners alike.

26
Closing the gap: improving sustained job outcomes for
clients on ESA and disability benefits #closingthegap
Facilitators: Scott Parkin, AdvanceUK and Deborah Tillett, Vinco Consulting
Employment programmes face their biggest challenges in helping ESA and disabled
clients into work. Yet some providers are getting it right. Drawing on the latest performance
analysis from Inclusion, and supported by the IEP, this facilitated
and highly interactive session will focus on performance
improvement through intensive dialogue and exchange of good
practice. Designed by experienced practitioners and including high
13
performing providers in the Work Programme, Work Choice and ESF funded programmes
this is your chance to hear about what works in this crucial area.
Location: Room 12 (64)

Transition to sustained employment: a partnership
approach
Speaker: Matthew Fellows, Remploy
Find out from disability expert Remploy, how partnership working can help to deliver
flexible employment options that meet the needs of all parties – service users, employers,
commissioners and other stakeholders. The session will also investigate how collaborative
work focusing on employment – rather than digital inclusion and/or financial advice – is key
to tackling the problems resulting from welfare reform, such as falling rental income.
Location: Room 14 (49)
28
Supporting the long term unemployed and vulnerable
into work through innovative and radical pre-employment intervention
Speakers: Marc Molloy, Family Mosaic
We created our award winning ‘Employment Boot Camp’, to motivate our long term
unemployed and disengaged customers and support them into sustained employment. The
programme is fast paced and focuses on different skills to standard industry programmes
including a rigorous fitness and diet regime alongside motivational speakers. 50 percent
of course participants secure work within three months of completion. 100 per cent report
the programme has had a positive impact on their lives. We designed a comprehensive
training programme for our Support Workers enabling them to offer their clients structured
employment guidance and advice as part of a ‘Care Plan’. This one day training session is
combined with a tool kit and monitoring process. The training is popular, value for money
and increases the transition to employment within a traditionally hard to help group. Last
year over 100 clients progressed into work as a direct result of this model.
Location: Room 7 (32)

The St Loye’s Foundation “Health Journal”: enabling
clients to “take ownership” and better manage their
health conditions
Speakers: Jane Edwards, St Loye’s Foundation and Simon Mills, Sustaincare CIC
St Loye’s Foundation presents the “Health Journal” which contains workbooks for clients:
these cover sleep, stress, low energy and eating issues. The Journal assists clients to
better understand and recognise health-related barriers to employment. The workbooks
assist clients to take ownership, and better manage their health issues and track their
14
progress. It has been adapted for clients on the Work Programme and is also a toolkit for
other work related contracts; it has been designed to assist staff and give them a structured
management tool to work with clients on their health issues.

Speaker: Ross James, Universal Credit Programme, Department for Work and Pensions
Universal Credit will support more claimants – helping them move closer to work, into work
and increase their earnings. This workshop will assess the wealth of activity in place to build
the evidence base for in-work progression (increasing earnings) and seek delegate input to
this activity.
Location: Hall 1B (250)

Integration of skills and employment outcomes
Speakers: Chris Melvin and Sue Gidman, PublicCo and Paul Warner, AELP
What are the changes in procurement for skills and employability? How closely integrated
are they and how can we ensure providers can deliver the best outcomes for the
individual learner, job seeker and employer? What are the small and not so small changes
providers can make to be more effective? This breakout session will look at the context
of procurement and the concerns of employment and skills providers. It will present case
studies of the work carried out by PublicCo and employment and skills providers to improve
performance. The improvements introduced are applicable across the skills and welfare to
work markets, making this breakout session a valuable learning opportunity for providers
and designers of policy alike.

Mindset Matters
Speakers: Luke Ward and Paul Nelson, REED NCFE Partnership
In 2009 REED asked 2,000 organisations “which one would you hire, an individual with
the desired mindset who lacks the complete skillset or an individual with the complete
skillset who lacks the complete mindset?” Over 96 percent of respondents said mindset.
Helping candidates demonstrate the right mindset qualities can help them to become three
time more likely to be interviewed and recruited. With a range of compelling case studies
and some live interactive demonstrations this session will provide stimulating debate and
discussion.

Skills for Growth: a case study in labour market
information and careers resources
Speaker: Rob Tabb, Liverpool City Region and Knowsley Council
Liverpool City Region’s Employment and Skills Board established the Skills for Growth
approach which has had three dimensions. Firstly, Skills for Growth Agreements set out the
current and future skills needs of businesses on a sectoral basis, complemented by a whole
economy view in the Annual Report. Secondly, the Jobs for Tomorrow materials provide
films and curriculum materials to explain specific job roles. Finally, The Skills Show at the
International Festival for Business, provides an opportunity for young people to have an
experiential approach to future jobs. This session will look at this work and draw out lessons
for areas to consider.
Location: Room 4B (90)

Fit for Purpose: Transforming support for people with
disabilities and health conditions
Speakers: Lorraine Lanceley and Sarah Foster, Inclusion
Working with a number of partner organisations Inclusion have recently completed an indepth project that investigated how we can develop a comprehensive and integrated offer
to ensure that disabled people and those with health conditions are able to access the right
support at the right time to prepare for and ultimately find work. This session will review
project findings on the evidence base for ‘what works’ to support them move into work, to
encourage learning about effective delivery and commissioning models.

An introduction to the new MSc in Employability
Leadership
Facilitators: Carole Still, Coventry University London Campus and Deborah Tillett, FIEP
A world first: A bespoke Masters in Employability Leadership co designed by the IEP and
Coventry University London campus to meet the needs of the ERS sector. Come and hear
our expert practitioners share their knowledge in a seminar format, similar to what you
will experience when studying on this exciting new degree programme. The ERS sector
has a high degree of public exposure, handling significant public funds, often deployed
through innovative financial frameworks with challenging targets and high expectations
from its customers and stakeholders. Leaders in this sector therefore have a unique set
of challenges to deal with. In particular they must have a full understanding of the way in
which government contracts are moving towards Payment By Results (PBR) requiring an
understanding of complex financial modelling to predict sensible returns on investment
decisions. PBR is now being adopted by other commissioners of employability services and
is destined to become a standard commissioning approach. ERS leaders must understand
how to communicate PBR and associated financial drivers so that their business can recruit
16
and marshal high quality supply chains to deliver contracts. If you are looking to develop

Fringe:
What Works in Offender Employment?
Speakers: Maria Thomas, Shaw Trust, Lauren Small, Inclusion, Nigel Bennett, PublicCo,
Carol Thomson, St Giles Trust
We know that employment can reduce the likelihood of reoffending but we also know that
offenders leaving custody face significant barriers to finding and staying in work. This
session brings together the knowledge of an expert panel with the views and experience of
you, the audience, to share learning on how to address these barriers and to make a real
impact on increasing employment and reducing reoffending.
Location: Room 12 (64)

Making into-work services deliver for those hit by
welfare reforms
Speakers: Liam Crosby, Community Links and Andrew Bazely, London Borough of
Newham
Newham, East London, is one of the areas most harshly affected by welfare reforms. At
this event, Community Links will present new evidence on the cumulative impact of welfare
reform, highlighting how it has affected their ability to engage with into-work services.
The London Borough of Newham will then discuss evidence of how their flagship intowork programme, workplace, effectively supports affected residents. The breakout will
highlight ’what works’ to support people affected by multiple welfare reforms and discuss
a programme which addresses their needs. A discussion around the potential for barriers
preventing other into-work programmes working effectively with these individuals will follow.
Location: Room 7 (32)

programmes or find out the view from a former Trainee, now an Apprenticeship learner,
on the programme? Come to this session and BT will describe why and how they are
running these pre-employment programmes, what decisions they made, what works well

A word from our sponsors
Patron sponsor
Networking dinner sponsor
You’ve got the job! There can be no better words to hear
when you are searching for work. And since our launch in
2012 The REED NCFE Partnership works has successfully
prepared thousands of learners for the world of work,
through our range of qualifications and our jobs brokerage
service.
Shaw Trust is a national employment, learning and skills
charity that helps people facing disadvantage into work,
gain skills and take control of their futures.
REED NCFE’s qualifications are designed to help learners
connect with the world of work. Our suite of Job Search
qualifications adopt a new approach and are focussed on
providing your learners with a vital competitive edge in
today’s difficult jobs market.
In fact research, in association with James Reed and
Harvard, shows that our mindset qualifications can make
your learners three times more likely to get a job. The
research identified that over 97 per cent of employers
will interview and recruit if the applicant can demonstrate
the right mindset e.g. trustworthiness, ownership, and
flexibility, over their ability to demonstrate the right skill
set.
The REED NCFE partnership works with learners, via
direct delivery of employability skills, jobs brokerage and
our range of qualifications, to help individuals develop and
display the correct mindset skills; increasing their chances
of being successful in being interviewed, recruited and
retained.
REED NCFE qualifications are being used across the
country with all kinds of learners to improve their chances
when entering the jobs market. 16-18 full time learners,

the opportunity for work, inclusion and independence

support schemes across Britain. As well as a range of
apprenticeship and skills contracts, we are also now

Education Trust: a multi-academy trust that supports
special schools and mainstream schools serving
disadvantaged communities.
But that is not all we do.
The Trust runs a range of social enterprise projects,
including recycling, catering and horticulture initiatives,
and a chain of nearly fifty shops, all of which are used as
a crucial stepping stone to employment. These avenues
create real-life opportunities through work experience,
gaining qualifications and volunteering.
The Shaw Trust stand at this year’s IntoWork Convention
will bring to life the variety of employability support
on offer at the Trust. Visit the interactive stand and be
amazed by the quality of the people we help, who will
showcasing the goods and services they provide to the
public. The convention breakout session will see Shaw
Trust launch the research paper ‘Stepping up: Bridging
local disability employment gaps’, which explains more on
how we accomplish that and why our approach works.
At the networking dinner, there will be a number of men
and women from Liverpool acting as hosts; all of whom
we are training and providing with work experience so
they can gain those first crucial steps on the employment
ladder.
So come and meet the capable and enthusiastic team of
people on our stand and at the dinner, and give them all
the encouragement they need. That’s what the IntoWork
convention is for.
