About Us


Impact Training has worked very closely within the community and have gained extensive experience of working in North Manchester area and have delivered community based training and development activity since 2001. Impact understands the challenges faced in creating appropriate learning opportunities for a culturally, and socio-economically diverse community where no qualifications and poor basic skills, including language, are the key factors influencing high levels of unemployment


We have a multi-lingual / multi-cultural team which engages directly with different linguistic and cultural groups in their locality or at group support events. Our Outreach workers have become trusted intermediaries and provide information on our Adult Skills delivery in an accessible format. This includes informal chats, taster activities embedded into a group’s other activities and formal presentations. Individuals and groups are introduced to Impact Training by the outreach worker and attend open days or short workshops as an introduction to the start of their learning journey
