Staff and learners at the training centre faced a series of in-depth interviews by assessors over three days about training.

Even their sub-contractors were questioned about the careers advice and guidance the academy gives.

Academy chairman Martin Kolton has cut a dash as a long-time advocate of apprenticeships. He started out as an apprentice himself in his youth once.

“Much of my career has been championing apprenticeships and training young people,” he said. “That commitment and passion is shared by the whole team, supporting trainees in their education so they get the best start to a career, which is now recognised by Matrix Standard assessors once again.”

There was “a great energy and focus” assessors found in the academy in Hollybush Gardens, off Bethnal Green Road. The team-based culture was producing a “motivating atmosphere” for hairdressing learners.
