Careers Opportunities

At David Nieper Academy, we are often sent opportunities for our students by local employers, alongside useful information to get our students’ careers started. This includes work experience, apprenticeships, training courses, as well as key information surrounding careers. As we find new opportunities and guidance for our students, we will upload them here for students and parents/carers to peruse and decide whether to partake. There are some fantastic options coming up, so be sure to keep checking back for more careers opportunities.
