Our Clients and Partners told Matrix that: "we are passionate and ‘devoted’ to the career development of young people, that we are inspirational and infectious and we really believe in getting the best outcomes with young people anything is possible in addition to the product being high quality, innovative and new. Customers like the fact they can adapt it for their own needs. They like our openness and engagement with critical friends and our willingness to listen to a wide range of views. We have a good network of partners and relationships to deliver the vision and extend our reach into places that would not normally be able to access career development"

Matrix Quality Assessment, January 2016

"Our partnership is transforming the way in which young people with learning difficulties and their families perceive themselves as being employable as well as employers gaining confidence, skills, knowledge and understanding about the way in which young people with learning difficulties can contribute to their businesses both economically and socially."
