The David Nieper Education Trust believes people are its magic ingredient as it develops local skills and local talent. Its sponsorship of The David Nieper Academy is the first of its kind in Derbyshire and combines a good education with life skills for future employability.

Strong links with Further and Higher Education, plus established employer relationships, means every student at the David Nieper Academy will understand the wide range of exciting opportunities available to them and both the education and career pathways that are on offer. As well as benefiting from applied learning in lessons, students have many opportunities to develop their employability skills in a range of contexts, such as our unique Enterprise Week and Employer Partner Challenges.

With a dedicated Employability team to coordinate all aspects of the Careers and Employability curriculum, we are confident our students will progress to the next stages of their education and/or training, with confidence and the necessary skills to be successful. From personalised careers guidance, to a specialised Enterprise curriculum, we offer a tailored, individualised careers programme that meets the needs of every student within the academy.

If you have any questions or queries regarding the Employability Curriculum at David Nieper Academy, please contact Miss Brindley or Mrs Wilcockson, at vbrindley@davidnieper.academy or swilcockson@davidnieper.academy
