Activision’s former UK boss Peter Hepworth has accepted a job with the Government.
He will head up a new joint venture from the Cabinet Office and Capita to promote best management practice and accredit training organisations.
“I am really looking forward to leading this exciting business,” Hepworth stated. “One of my priorities over the next few months will be to listen to and work with the practitioner communities, including accredited training organisations and examination institutes.
“Their input is vital as we work towards developing this new company and decide how best to take these world-class products to the next level.”
Capita’s executive director Dawn Marriott added: “There has been a shift in the way people learn and how learning is delivered in the past decade, with the rise of simulation and ‘learning by doing’.
“One of the aims of the joint venture will be to modernise both the content and delivery of the Best Management Practice products to reflect this shift. Peter’s in-depth knowledge of the video gaming industry and international experience means he will be a great asset to the new company.”
