Paul Muir, eAA Vice Chair, Chief Strategy and Partnership Officer, Surpass
Paul Muir, eAA Vice Chair has joined Surpass as Chief Strategy and Partnership Officer
This is a new role at Surpass Assessment and Paul will be focused on widening the discussion, including how technology and assessment can help people advance their careers and education without leaving people behind.
Paul has worked in the assessment industry for over 20 years, in roles delivering education and curriculum reform projects across the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, to transformational roles at Awarding Bodies and Regulators in the UK.
Prior to joining Surpass Assessment in January 2023, Paul spent 7 ½ years at the British Council and was responsible leading their transition from a predominantly Pen and Paper exams business to one led by technology enabled assessment.
Paul has a passion for enhancing access to education globally using technology, especially in parts of the world where this is not always the ‘easy’ path and where innovative and more unique ways of working can be rewarded. Delivering equity in an unequal world of assessment, a ‘Digital Divide’ that was further widened by the Covid pandemic, is where Paul strives to make a significant difference in the coming years.
