Cidori has been accredited to the matrix Standard, demonstrating the high quality of Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) that our team provides every potential candidate for adult skills training courses and apprenticeships.

Cidori works in partnership with top UK colleges providing a fully wraparound support for Adult Education Budget (AEB) and apprenticeship provision with teaching, learning and assessment delivered by a college partner, and onboarding and progression support conducted by Cidori.

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 Cidori 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, Cidori is working to provide the best possible support to their clients.”

We believe that critical to the success of our programmes is our close working relationships with college partners, with seamless delivery from initial engagement through to progression. We are committed to the delivery of high-quality information, advice, and guidance as we continue to focus on these vital aspects of the learner journey.

Commenting on the award, Pam Fitton, Managing Director at Cidori said:

We are delighted with this award which reflects our investment of much time, effort and focus on this important aspect of the support we provide. It speaks to the high-quality service that our team gives candidates, clients, and partners – ensuring people are signposted with the right information to upskill and supported into work or further learning is at the core of why Cidori exists.”
