AQR International is a highly innovative psychometric test publisher and consultancy. AQR together with Peter Clough (Professor of Applied Psychology at MMU), has developed the Mental Toughness measure MTQ48 and a leading integrated leadership measure, ILM72. Together with The Carrus Partnership, we have also developed CARRUS – a unique employability measure. We now operate in over 80 countries, with offices in the UK, UAE and Poland,

AQR psychometric tests are focused on individual and organisational development – principally the impact on performance, wellbeing & positive behaviours.  These translate into important and valuable outcomes.

We offer a range of innovative and accessible psychometric tests, tools and development programmes for people of all ages and with organisations of all types.

This takes AQR into applications in the world of work, education, youth development, sport, employability, health and social mobility.
