A Brighouse based training organisation has received a nationally-recognised quality mark.
Taylor’s Training Ltd has gained the matrix Standard after demonstrating “exceptional quality standards” in areas such as supporting individuals, employers, prospective and on-programme apprentices as well as its own employees.
To achieve accreditation organisations must “plan effectively to be able to review, evaluate and develop their service; encourage the take up of professionally recognised qualifications and the continuous professional development of their staff and services”.
Taylor’s Training Ltd was founded in 1996 and delivers provision and support for hairdressing and barbering apprenticeships.
Director Sandra Tickner Hobson said: “Information, advice and guidance is so important to get right. Prospective apprentices need to be employed and employable and we believe that giving honest information and advice is a major contributor in terms of acquiring the right skills and giving any individual the greatest opportunities for their career.
“We will maintain the quality and consistency of our procedures to make sure this happens. I want to know we have done the best we can for all the apprentices, employers and our own staff.
“Achieving the matrix Standard means we can strengthen the criteria related to positive outcomes, the continuing professional development and competence of staff, continuous quality improvement and strengthen links with other quality standards and inspection frameworks.
“We are very pleased to have achieved the matrix Standard.
“It demonstrates the high standard of teaching, training and education we provide at Taylor’s Training. It gives us a point of reference to which we can continue to measure, maintain and improve our standards further.”
