What is a Matrix accreditation?

The Matrix accreditation recognises the high standards that an organisation demonstrates with regards to Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG). It is an accreditation open to any organisation that offers support for individuals in their career. For SIMIAN, this refers to our dedication to delivering expert training to improve and further the career of scaffolding professionals.

The assessment for accreditation (and reaccreditation) looks at:

  • How clearly the offering to learners is defined
  • That we provide accurate, impartial, up to date and confidential information
  • That learners are able to make informed decisions
  • That training is continuously evaluated and improved upon

Speaking on the completion of the assessment, SIMIAN’s UK Operations Manager, Susan Russell has said:

“The investment in new systems, processes and staff has assisted us in achieving a very favourable and positive report from the auditor.  The auditor was impressed by the range of unbiased advice, information and guidance that we provide in the classroom, in our training materials and across our social media platforms.  Well done to the team!”
