“We have grown significantly through partnering with Active IQ and there is no doubt we attribute our success to our relationship and their extraordinary support and guidance,” says James Luscombe, Study Active Managing Director. “The support we have received has been amazing: the Active IQ staff have shown a real interest in our business and have gone the extra mile to help us improve and grow,” he continues. “The business development team is always giving us hints and tips and making us aware of new opportunities, it’s great to know we have Active IQ in our corner.”
Study Active chose Active IQ as its awarding organisation as it believes the combination of its high-quality training resources, choice of courses and ‘can do’ attitude of its staff aligned well with its education model. Offering online and blended training, Study Active rests assured by the quality of the Active IQ’s training materials and the ease of accessibility for its students working online and remotely.
In addition, Study Active has complete confidence in the Active IQ quality assurance process. “Active IQ understands our educational model and works with us throughout the year to improve the way we deliver training and support to our students,” says Luscombe. “Behind the scenes, Active IQ helps enrol our students, advises us on our business plan and growth strategy: it’s a great team to work with and we’re looking forward to developing further with their support.”
“Study Active has done very well in the short time since it launched and I congratulate them on building a strong business that has caught the attention of the judges in the SME Bedfordshire Business Awards,” says Jenny Patrickson, Active IQ Managing Director. “We really enjoy working with young, developing businesses and have plenty of resources to offer the training provider as well as their students. In an industry where professionalism and standards are constantly being scrutinised, we welcome the chance to offer our expertise and guidance to help training providers excel like Study Active.”
