We Passed Our Matrix Reassessment

We are delighted to announce that LEBC passed the Matrix accreditation reassessment.

The Matrix assessor carried out interviews and observations with LEBC’s Chief Executive Barbara Chantrill, alongside managers and staff. The assessor also observed IAG sessions and completed telephone interviews with school representatives, students and employers.

Below are a few comments from the final Matrix report completed by the assessor:

“LEBC is a very impressive organisation that is effective and highly regarded. It compares extremely favourably with similar organisations with matrix Accreditation and should be confident of its effectiveness and be more robust in its promotion, especially of the package of support it delivers, which is intrinsically excellent value for money.”

“The model of IAG used by careers advisers is supportive and challenging and encourages responsibility for decision-making. The observation of these sessions also provided strong evidence for impartiality, confidentiality and professional integrity, and appropriate referral.”

“IAG delivered through the Careers Service as “essential”, “student-focused and exceptional value for money” and “a complete package of high quality IAG from brilliant LEBC staff.”

 “Services provided are delivered to a very high standard with high quality embedded in processes and procedures. Comments from schools and partners were fulsome in their praise, and support for the range of activities provided.”
