Proud to be awarded Matrix Standard Accreditation

We are delighted to share the fantastic news that we have achieved Matrix Accreditation by demonstrating the high quality of our Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) services.

The Matrix assessor was impressed that “professional integrity is an integral part of the organisation’s values”. Involvement from staff, employers, partners and apprentices has been key in Blue Sky achieving this accreditation.

The assessor stated that “there is clear leadership and direction” with staff speaking of “how they felt engaged with the vision and direction”. The assessor said that “both employers and apprentices were positive about the quality of provision” and reported a learner as saying the support was like “working with a friend that where you were unsure, you could confide in them”, and “they look after us so well it should be impossible not to succeed”. 

The Matrix Standard is the international quality standard for organisations that deliver information, advice and/or guidance (IAG), either as their sole purpose or as part of their service offering. Matrix provides a quality framework for the effective delivery of high quality IAG and for continuous review, evaluation and development of services and staff.

We are extremely proud of this achievement because it is testament to the hard work of all involved in developing and providing Blue Sky’s high quality IAG services. It also recognises our commitment to continuous quality improvement and to working closely with learners, employers, partners, and staff whilst supporting them to identify and achieve their goals.

We look forward to another year of inspiring aspirations in 2022!

We want to offer our heartfelt congratulations to our client Blue Sky Assessing and Consultancy Ltd, on achieving the very prestigious DfE-supported Matrix Award in recognition of the high quality of their Information, Advice and Guidance services.

Alongside the many glowing comments from Blue Sky’s own learners, the Matrix Award assessor noted that it was “very refreshing to assess a training provider that focused on quality over quantity” and that Blue Sky demonstrated “clear leadership and direction”.

This really is a thoroughly deserved award, and SkillWise is proud to be able to partner with such a professional provider. We wish Blue Sky every success going forward.
