National Star has been accredited to the matrix Standard, demonstrating the high quality advice, information and guidance they provide to students with disabilities learning with them.

Assessors praised the ‘Ofsted’ outstanding independent college for its excellent levels of information and guidance support. It was also noted that students interviewed were overwhelmingly positive about their experiences at National Star.

Information, advice and guidance

The matrix Standard is the international quality standard for organisations that deliver information, advice and/or guidance (IAG), either as their sole purpose or as part of their service offering.

Roger Chapman, Head of the matrix Service for The Growth Company said: ‘This is a fantastic achievement for National Star and I would like to congratulate the team on their success. We believe that at the heart of high-quality advice and support services are strong leadership, excellent service and a focus on continuous improvement, all underpinned by effective use of the resources available. The matrix Standard is designed to benchmark organisations against best practice in these areas. With their accreditation success, National Star is working to provide the best possible support to their students.’

Enabling students to be equal and active citizens

‘Information, advice and guidance is at the heart of all we do at National Star. From the moment a student joins the college we are looking at supporting them to live as independently as possible in the future, providing specialist individualised support. This enables students to become equal and active citizens in their community, be that engaging with the world around them more, positively contributing to their community or moving into the world of work.

‘We are delighted to have retained the matrix Standard for another three years and feel especially proud that assessors recognised that young people’s lives are being significantly improved through the support of National Star.’
