CAW Celebrates matrix Re-accreditation!

We are thrilled to announce that The College of Animal Welfare has successfully achieved matrix re-accreditation following a comprehensive inspection carried out between the 15-18 April 2024. This achievement underscores our commitment to delivering exceptional information, advice and guidance (IAG) to our students, employers and those looking to study with us.

The matrix Standard is a prestigious benchmark for organisations to assess and measure their IAG services. Achieving this re-accreditation is a testament to the high standards we strive to uphold; ensuring that our services are accessible, effectively managed, and of the highest quality.

During the inspection, the inspector noted that staff at the College are well qualified for the role they deliver and that they are passionate about supporting students in a manner that is tailored to their individual needs. Our commitment to providing high quality and effective student focussed IAG was demonstrated by the senior leadership team and down through the organisation.

College Principal, Barbara Cooper, commented “I am thrilled to celebrate our matrix accreditation. The report highlighted several key aspects of our approach: our dedication to recognising and addressing the diverse needs of our students, our clear communication of IAG to stakeholders, and the ongoing support provided throughout our students’ educational journey. Furthermore, our students themselves have praised our comprehensive approach to welfare, safeguarding, and career-focused IAG. This recognition marks our commitment to, not only meet, but exceed the expectations of our college community.

As we celebrate this achievement, we also look to the future by building on the strengths identified and considering the development suggestions. We thank all our staff, students, employers and partners for their hard work and commitment, and contribution during the inspection. Together, we will continue to ensure every student can achieve their full potential.
