Matrix stamp of approval for college’s support to students

Tameside College and Clarendon Sixth Form College has been re-accredited with the Matrix standard for its work supporting learners, following a glowing report.

The Matrix standard is a nationally recognised award for colleges and training providers who provide a high standard of support for students throughout their learning. Assessors seek evidence of good practice covering: information, advice and guidance, induction, wellbeing, safeguarding, and progression.

The assessor cited a number of strengths in the report that included: the role progress tutors play in supporting learners’ progression, access to employers, support for learners seeking progression to university and management of the service.

Emma Armitage, assistant principal, student experience said: “We are delighted to have met the high expectations set by the Matrix standard assessor. We are determined to deliver the best possible support for students as they continue their journey through college. This report confirms the consistently high standards that everyone works to.”
