Parenta Training, the UK’s largest training provider of childcare apprenticeships has been accredited to the Matrix Standard, demonstrating the high quality of Information Advice and Guidance it provides to around 2000 childcare apprentices and their employers, nationally, each year.

Since 2002, the Matrix Standard has been the international quality standard for organisations that deliver information, advice and/or guidance (IAG), either as their sole purpose or as part of their wider service offer.

Speaking from Parenta’s HQ in Maidstone, Kent Chairman Allan Presland said;

“Our goal is to be recognised for our passion in delivering nothing less than remarkable childcare training.  Exceptional IAG should be comprehensive, accurate, and relevant to the individual's needs and circumstances. It must be delivered in a clear and accessible manner, tailored to the learner’s level of understanding and cultural background. I’m so proud to say that the Parenta team has excelled in these areas, and all the incredible hard work has paid off. The team works tirelessly to help our learners make informed decisions about their education, training, and career choices, and support them unconditionally in achieving their goals.”

Roger Chapman, Head of the Matrix Service for The Growth Company said:

“This is a fantastic achievement for Parenta Training, 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, Parenta Training is working to provide the best possible support to their apprentices and their employers.”
