The Careers & Employability Service (CES) has been awarded the prestigious Matrix Quality Standard.
Matrix is the nationally qualified standard for any organisation that delivers information, advice and/or guidance on learning and work.
An external assessor visited the service for three days and, as well as interviewing staff, students, graduates and employers who work closely with the Service, she observed guidance interactions and reviewed the service’s documentation and quality systems.
Many strengths were identified, including ‘the commitment and enthusiasm by staff to provide students and employers with the best possible service’ and ‘staff going the extra mile’.
Paul Redmond, Head of CES, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that the information, advice and guidance that we provide has been recognised as being of the very highest quality. We know that our Service is one of the best used in the UK by students and rated highly by national and international recruiters. It’s marvellous to have this confirmed by Matrix.”
