November 22, 2021

Ascend Learning brand Active IQ has been recognized as Exporter of the Year Award at the sixth annual FAB 2021 Awards, organized by the Federation of Awarding Bodies, the trade association representing the collective interests of the UK’s qualifications and assessments industry.  The ‘Exporter of the Year’ award recognizes the success of an organization’s exports and international business.

The FAB 2021 Awards recognize the contributions made by awarding organizations 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 our international team for their exemplary work overseas, including their groundbreaking success in Saudi Arabia 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.”

Laurie McCartney, president of Ascend’s fitness & wellness segment, added “This distinguished award is a testament to Active IQ’s commitment to delivering the industry’s best qualifications and the highest level of customer service around the world. We are very proud of the team.”
