Uckfield training centre wins internationally-recognised accreditation

Partners 4 Training, an Uckfield-based training provider for hairdressing, barbering and beauty therapy apprenticeships, has been been recognised for demonstrating a high quality of training, information, advice and guidance.

The training centre, just off London Road, has been accredited to the Matrix Standard, an international quality standard which benchmarks organisations against best practice in these areas.

Partners 4 Training provides training for more than 50 apprentices within the hairdressing, barbering, and beauty therapy industry.

The centre was established in 2003 and has been under new direction for the last four years, a point mentioned in the recent appraisal, improving on its already ‘stellar’ reputation with local employers and apprentices.


Roger Chapman, Head of the Matrix Service for The Growth Company said: “This is a fantastic achievement for Partners 4 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. 

“With their accreditation success Partners 4 Training is working to provide the best possible support to their clients.” 


Allison Faires, Director of Partners 4 Training, said: “We are incredibly proud and grateful to all our students, staff and employers who have helped us over the last few days.

“They have worked really hard and have spoken incredibly highly of us to our Matrix assessor, and have helped us secure Matrix accreditation for the next three years.

“This has been a massive effort during lockdown, and we are very proud to have displayed exactly why employers and students use Partners 4 Training again and again for their training needs in hairdressing, barbering and beauty therapy.”
