At Academy Transformation Trust Further Education (ATTFE) College we offer free Careers, EducationInformationAdvice and Guidance sessions, where you can discuss your learning goals and thoughts with experienced and qualified staff members.

ATTFE has invested in a CEIAG Advisor who spends time on a weekly basis meeting learners one-to-one or in classes to share ‘next steps’ information to support careers progression. Destination data is routinely collected and collated from learners, reported on and analysed to support future curriculum planning and on-going quality improvements. ATTFE’s careers policy can be found here: Careers Policy

Matrix Quality Standard for Information Advice and Guidance Services

ATTFE College are proud to have achieved the Matrix quality standard for information advice and guidance services!

What is the matrix Standard?

It 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.

The matrix Standard is the Department for Education’s (DfE) standard for ensuring the quality of the delivery of high-quality information, advice and guidance. The DfE supports the matrix Standard as the quality framework for accrediting information, advice and guidance contracts including the National Careers Service, its subcontractors and other services delivered on behalf of the Education Skills Funding Agency.
