WAES achieves Matrix Standard achievement

We are delighted to be accredited The Matrix Standard, demonstrating the high quality of Information Advice and Guidance services that we provide to current and potential WAES learners.

WAES was assessed from 6 to 8 December 2022 and achieved The Matrix Standard Accreditation with a number of strengths identified according to the latest Matrix criteria.

  • A clearer admissions and enrolment process has been delivered and well received. There are dedicated staff assigned to each stage of the process to guide potential learners to make informed decisions and learning choices.
  • An increase of Careers and Learning Development Officers to support learners with career and employability opportunities.
  • The Careers Minimum Entitlement document clearly sets out the careers support available to learners on different programmes.
  • Staff are passionate about the work they do and are committed to supporting learners to access and make progress in their learning.

There is a strong link between the work of the service and the priorities of the local authority and the London Mayor’s office to ensure local needs are met.
