THE support Weston College provides for its students has been recognised through the award of a new Matrix accreditation.

The award is given out by the Government’s Department for Business Innovation and Skills.

It has recognised the Weston-super-Mare college’s advice, schools, progression, employability, careers and transition project.

The report produced by the Matrix assessors said: “Care, guidance and support for learners is embedded across the college and is found across the learner’s journey.

“However specialist services add value by providing comprehensive and impartial information, advice and guidance to ensure learners enrol and achieve on a level and mode of study that supports their ability and aspirations. The specialist support services accredited have measurable aims and objectives.”

The college’s principal Dr Paul Phillips said: “Gaining the Matrix standard shows the college has achieved specified benchmarks in terms of the quality of provision for our students.

“I am delighted the dedicated work of staff in these four services has been acknowledged.

“Our aim now is to build and expand upon what we have achieved so far by taking a whole college approach to the Matrix standard in the future.”
