Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) has passed a key quality framework inspection.
CACT’s Education department has gained matrix Standard re-accreditation, the unique quality framework for organisations to assess and measure their information, advice and/or guidance (IAG) services.
This is key to ultimately supporting individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals.
The inspection took place over two days at Valley Central Youth Hub, where CACT runs a number of traineeships for 16 to 24 year-olds, and Marsh Academy in New Romney, Kent.
CACT’s application was supported by Marsh Academy and fellow partners London South East Colleges. CACT delivers a range of education programmes across South East London and Kent and offers both mainstream and alternative provision.
Accreditation covers the next three years.
Dan Morrin, CACT’s Education Manager, said:
“This re-accreditation is testament to the amount of work put in by the Education team over the past 3 years. The boundaries and expectations of IAG are constantly changing and CACT’s Education department recognised that to move forwards, it needed the help of other specialist teams within CACT.
“The Research and Development team were instrumental in this inspection, ensuring we track and monitor the impact of our IAG delivery and they, along with the Director driving forwards the new strategic plan, were given special mention in the report.”
