Recent Opportunities

At David Nieper Academy, we are often sent opportunities for our students by local employers. This includes work experience, apprenticeships, and other training courses. As the opportunities are sent to us, we will upload them here for students and parents/carers to peruse and decide whether students would like to partake. There are some fantastic options coming up, so be sure to keep checking back for more recent opportunities.

DFS Apprenticeships

“At DFS, we are very busy putting together our unique apprenticeship, this would be ideal for anyone arty or creative, and we put all of our apprentices through the Duke of Edinburgh gold award too.

The programmes that we are recruiting in are sewing and cutting, as well as upholstery and frame making.

The opportunities within DFS are massive – we have a diverse workforce and need to pass on our unique skills to the next generation.

We have a career path that can take anyone anywhere within the business, from design & developmen to photographic studios; from admin to service management. 

The opportunities are endless. With the drive and determination to succeed, you get the support and encouragement.”
