Sense College Loughborough retains matrix Standard accreditation
Posted: Wed, 02 Jun 2021 10:07
Earlier this year, Sense College Loughborough was assessed for the re-accreditation of the matrix Standard, an international quality standard for organisations that deliver information, advice and/or guidance. After two days of virtual meetings with staff, students, parents and employers, the College is pleased to announce that we retained our accreditation.
To be accredited with the matrix Standard, an organisation must ensure the delivery of high-quality information, advice and guidance. It also helps providers to improve their services. The assessor felt that the College offered an impartial service to students from the moment of initial contact until they finish their College programme.
The College was praised for the high level of quality of services, even throughout the pandemic and the transition to Sense; "The transition from RNIB to Sense has been handled with sensitivity and professionalism and many of the staff described "business as usual". This has supported the continuation of services to the same high level of quality – even though the pandemic."
The College was also recognised for good use of its resources, taking advantage of the layout of the College to enable some students to take part in an internal work placement. The assessment has also provided an opportunity to develop and improve the College's provision, looking at new ways to 'match' students and employers in the future.
The College will have annual Continuous Improvement Checks to retain the matrix Standard accreditation going forward. For more information about the matrix Standard, please click on the following link: https://matrixstandard.com/
