Active IQ has won the Exporter of the Year Award at the sixth annual FAB 2021 Awards, organised by the Federation of Awarding Bodies.
The ‘Exporter of the Year’ award recognises the success of an organisation’s exports and international business.
The FAB 2021 Awards recognise the contributions made by awarding organisations and their employees to education and skills in the UK over the past year.
The winners were announced on Thursday November 11th at the FAB 2021 Awards dinner, sponsored by Creatio, at the end of the first day of the FAB Conference at the Marriott Hotel in Leicester.
“We are absolutely delighted to win the Exporter of the Year Award and to have our international work recognised by this prestigious judging panel,” says Jenny Patrickson, Active IQ Managing Director.
“I would like to thank and congratulate my international team for their exemplary work overseas.
In particular, I’m very proud of their success in Saudi Arabia breaking new ground by training and recruiting Saudi women instructors in partnership with Spectrum® Wellness for Women.
Alongside this, they completed the translation of our course materials and supporting resources into Arabic and Egyptian which is helping to cement our presence in the Middle East.”
Tom Bewick, FAB Chief Executive, said “This year we received an abundance of excellent nominations for the FAB Awards, all of which were of a very high standard and demonstrated the commitment of our members to learners and the sector.
I am immensely proud of how our industry has risen to the challenges of the last two years and I have heard and seen so many examples of excellence demonstrated by individuals and teams pulling together to support one another as well as centres, employers and, of course, learners.”
