MRG are delighted to announce that they have again successfully achieved the Matrix Standard.
- By MRG Services
The Matrix Standard is the International Quality Standard for organisations that deliver
information, advice and/or guidance. It is also a contractual requirement for Providers to maintain
their standing on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP)
Either as their sole purpose or as part of their service offering. The matrix Standard is the
Department for Education’s standard for ensuring the quality of the delivery of high-quality
information, advice, and guidance. The DfE supports the matrix Standard as the quality framework
for accrediting information, advice and guidance contracts including the National Careers Service,
its subcontractors and other services delivered on behalf of the Education Skills Funding Agency.
It helps providers to improve their services by benchmarking against best practice and it offers accreditation to those that meet the full standard on a two-yearly basis.
When an independent Assessor confirms that all criteria are met, the organisation becomes an accredited organisation and can display the matrix quality mark to demonstrate that it offers high quality IAG services.
The matrix Standard is an outcome- based standard. This means that an Assessor will look not onlyat processes used to support IAG delivery but also at results achieved.
