Ruby Barter Customer Support & Quality Assurance Manager - Badge Nation

Ruby joined Real Ideas in January 2019, looking for a new challenge after graduating with a Bsc (Hons) in Events Management from University of Plymouth.

Originally a member of the Enterprise Team, helping to manage our listed buildings and the events within them, Ruby branched out as a Programme Coordinator to deliver comms and community business support on programmes such as Empowering Places, Future Parks Accelerator, and the Cities of Learning pilot.

During Covid-19 Ruby applied her event management experience to online platforms as a Webinar Producer and developed a training package in webinar production. Following the Cities of Learning pilot, she joined a small group of colleagues as founding members of Badge Nation – a purpose driven partnership to support organisations to recognise what individuals achieve outside of formally accredited qualifications, using digital badges to motive learning and ambition.

Now, as Badge Nation’s Customer Support and Quality Assurance Manager, she focuses her knack for fine detail and processes on helping organisations write great digital badges and access online platforms to issue badges – empowering earners with the language and tools to better tell their stories.
