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.
We have been working with Ann, Phil, and Helen as a partner for the Building Better Opportunities project for nearly a year and they have been fantastic throughout. They are always professional and polite, excellent communicators and always deliver on promises. They are great at developing a group dynamic with our customers and providing an informal supportive learning environment. They make all of our customers feel at ease, many of which have confidence issues and may have been out of work for a long time. We have seen some excellent achievements and employability related outcomes during our time working together. They provide a first class service.
