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.
