Welcome to Aimhigher Northamptonshire.
We are a Matrix accredited not-for-profit organisation working with employers, public bodies, colleges, work-based learning providers and community projects covering a range of activities to widen and increase participation in the next level of learning, employment and training. Our focus is on developing a systematic programme of activities to raise aspirations, awareness, and attainment among young people and adults.
I have seen a difference from the beginning of the course to now, that being an improvement, in not only my communication skills, but each and every member of the group. I think the interviews that we have practiced have vastly improved from when we started and we all seem very comfortable in each other’s company and are willing to pair up with any member at all. This course has allowed our confidence to grow, which I think is a large part of getting back to work, even if we don’t achieve our needs straight away, the things we have learnt here on this course will and can be applied to everyday scenarios and can be referred back to.
Aimhigher have worked successfully with some of our Year 11 students here at Silverstone UTC for the last 3 years. They have built such positive relationships with our students through the employability skills qualifications with 100% success. All students who participated in the programme have gone on to further education/ employment or training. This is testimony to the hard work and dedication of the Aimhigher team.
