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 was slightly hesitant to commit to the 3 week course ‘Journey to work’. However I am so glad that I did. It’s been a really lovely group and a good feeling to meet other people in the same position as myself. Over the weeks I’ve seen everyone’s confidence improve and have learned some valuable skills from preparing for interviews to updating my CV. The course tutors have been excellent. They are both friendly and approachable and I’ve really benefitted from their wide knowledge base and feel so much more confident about re-entering the world of work.
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.
