Malcolm McIver

Following a successful career in the field of healthcare, where he rose to the position of General Manager of a large specialist hospital in the UK, Dr McIver commenced his career in education as a Senior Lecturer at Homerton College of Health Studies in Cambridge. For more than 10 years he held a number of senior academic positions at several UK Universities and as visiting Professor to prestigious international institutions including the University of Washington, and KPJ Healthcare University. Although his professional background is in Health, it was his passion for education that led to him being invited to join the University of Cambridge as the Lead Researcher on a (UK) Government funded research project into School effectiveness and Teacher Sickness absence.

In 2000, he received the highest rating from the UK’s Economic & Social Research Counsel for his PhD proposal to research School Effectiveness, which he undertook at the University of Cambridge. Following the successful completion of his Doctorate he returned to education with the University of Hertfordshire where he held a number of teaching and research positions in the Faculty of Health before being appointed the Project Lead for International Developments. As The Project Lead, he was responsible for developing and managing a range of programmes for delivery across Asia and the ASEAN Region; a role that enabled him to pursue his joint passions of Education and Internationalisation. Since that time, he has held a number of senior positions, most notably the Director of Studies in SE Asia with the University of Hertfordshire, Senior Designer for the Malaysian Governments School Transformation Programme, Head of Collaborative International Partnerships at the London School of Commerce, and Provost and CEO at Lancaster University (Ghana).

With a First-Class Honours degree in Education from the University of Manchester, an M.A (Dist.) in Medical Ethics from the University of Northampton and a PhD in Education from the University of Cambridge, Dr McIver’s areas of expertise are Trans-national Education, School Effectiveness, and Ethics whilst he also retains a keen interest in Health Care and Learning Disabilities.
