The Heritage Trust of Lincolnshire has been celebrating after being awarded with the nationally recognised quality mark for organisations which provide support to individuals to make learning and work more accessible – the Matrix Standard.
The Matrix Standard recognised the quality of the information, advice and guidance the Trust’s tutors have provided to learners on its popular lifelong learning courses.
An independent assessor visited the Trust’s offices and interviewed staff, learners and partners and considered a range of evidence before making his assessment.
His final report praised the “depth of knowledge and professional experience of its tutors” and was impressed by the way the courses helped “learners to become more aware and confident in exploring their heritage”.
Liz Bates, chief executive officer at the Trust, said the assessment had been a very useful process.
