Georgina Shaw joins as Director of Quality & Standards

Active IQ has appointed two directors to strengthen its senior management team.

James McPherson joins in a new role of Commercial Director with a focus on growing the business as part of its five-year growth plan including the development of its new EPA service line.

In addition, Georgina Shaw joins as Director of Quality & Standards and her primary focus is on continuing to achieve the highest quality standards across the diverse range of Active IQ approved providers as well as maintaining and ensuring compliance with the regulators.

James brings a wealth of commercial and strategic expertise to his newly-created role. His career spans experience in commercial media including work for The Times and Sunday Times. After completing his MBA, James worked on strategic projects in diverse industries including travel and tourism, security and the public sector.

Georgina started her career in Law and later qualified as a Psychologist before moving to the education sector working in Further and Higher education environments where she attained an MA in Education.   A published author, she has some 20 years’ experience designing and developing qualification and assessment materials from entry level to level 7 with Pearson Edexcel, AIMs and awarding organisations across a range of industries.  She has also worked as a Chief examiner, Responsible Officer and is an approved Ofqual external expert.

“I am very pleased with our two new appointments who come at a time of growth and development at Active IQ,” says Jenny Patrickson, Active IQ managing director.  “James’ new role represents our commitment to drive growth and development while reinforcing our increasingly strong position within end-point assessment.

“Georgie has a highly valuable skill set honed over years of working within quality educational programmes and we are very fortunate to have her join our team,” continues Jenny.  “Her role is crucial to the ongoing success of our business and reputation and we are looking forward to enhancing our services in light of her fresh contributions.”
