Matrix accreditation

In July 2017 Beacon East achieved the Matrix Standard for Careers & Education Business Links. The Matrix Standard is widely recognised by the CDI (Career Development Institute), DfE (Department for Education), Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education) and many other key organisations as the highest award in this field. It is also a clear demonstration of high quality service delivery and commitment to making a real difference with clients. Partners and clients seeking to work with an external organisation should ideally work with a Matrix accredited organisation.  

The Matrix Standard is the unique quality framework for organisations to assess and measure their information, advice and/or guidance services, which ultimately supports individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals. For more information on the Matrix Standard go to www.matrixstandard.com

Gatsby Framework

In 2014, Lord Sainsbury’s Gatsby Charitable Foundation published a report by Professor Sir John Holman, Adviser in Education at the Gatsby Foundation, titled “Good Career Guidance.” The report identified eight benchmarks that are the core of good careers and enterprise provision in schools. These benchmarks were tested over a two-year period in a pilot with 16 schools and colleges in the north east of England with very successful results. In January 2018 the latest government guidance on careers in schools was published. At the centre of his new careers strategy is the Gatsby framework. It is very clear that all schools are now asked to adopt the framework in order to achieve outstanding careers provision at their institutions. Beacon East can help schools meet statutory requirements and the Gatsby benchmarks.
