Devon & Cornwall Electrical Training achieves Matrix standard

Devon & Cornwall Electrical Training (DCET) has been accredited with the Matrix standard, a nationally recognised quality mark for training providers.

DCET, which has training centres in the South West, gained accreditation after reviewing how the organisation provides information, advice and guidance to its clients.

Stephen Baker, operations manager at DCET, who prepared for the assessment said: “We decided that the Matrix standard, amongst other things, would help us demonstrate a level of excellence in our approach to developing the full potential of our learners in a three way partnership between DCET, the learner and the employer. The assessment was extremely helpful and has enabled us to successfully review and improve some our procedures.”

David Morgan, director of marketing and communications at ENTO, the company responsible for maintaining and promoting the Matrix standard on behalf of the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS), said: “This Matrix accreditation is another example of how the standard is proving effective for all types of organisations, helping them to provide a more professional service offering and to strive to be the best in their sector.”

An electrician from Devon recently became DCET’s 500th successful candidate to pass a City & Guilds qualification.

Richard Brown, who works for electrical contractor Fords & Sons, became the 500th candidate to pass the 17th Edition IEE Regulations course.
