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.
At the beginning of the course my confidence was a bit low. As we have proceeded my confidence has come back. I feel refreshed in my interview skills and confidence in an interview. Also it gave back some experience and skills in jobs that I had forgot I had or been involved with.
"We have been working with Aimhigher for about three and a half years now and always find them to be very accomodating and understanding of the differing needs of our service users, many of whom are vulnerable women. They support the ladies where necessary on a one to one basis and if they recognise a need that they are unable to meet they will endeavour to refer to other relevant or appropriate agencies who can help. The Aimhigher staff are not just tutors, they go above and beyond to follow up with anyone who does not attend the sessions. This is really important for our cohort of women as it has often been a huge effort on their part to commit to the course in the first place due to the extent of some of the vulnerabilities they have. We therefore do our best to keep them engaged and Aimhigher work closely with us to this extent. Because of the input from Aimhigher and their patience and dedication, many of our service users have gained accredited qualifications for the first time ever."
