Priestley College has seen its matrix accreditation renewed for a third time in recognition of the quality of the advice, guidance and support it offers students.
The successful inspection means Priestley has met the international standard and received praise for the impartial advice it offers on everything from careers to health and wellbeing. Among the college’s many strengths, the inspector said, was its impressive partnerships with employers, universities and local schools.
“To receive this seal of approval is something we are very proud of as a college,” said Assistant Principal Mark Eccleston.
During the four-day inspection more than 61 members of staff were interviewed as well as 16 students and three partner agencies.
