Are you a visionary leader who wants to shape the future of young people?
Our Academy is sponsored by the David Nieper Education Trust, together with local employer partners, who are highly committed in supporting the development and achievements of our students. With an innovative approach to teaching, hands-on learning and brand new purpose-built facilities, which opened in February 2017, we believe that this is a truly exciting time to join the academy and help us to shape the future.
Our aim is to raise standards, expectations, inspire excellence and to encourage students to achieve their full potential. We will help them develop confidence and key lifelong learning skills and to obtain the qualifications required as they look to future careers and explore the many opportunities in further education, apprenticeships, university and beyond. The opening of our Business and Enterprise Sixth Form Centre is a further development in our growth. The Sixth Form will provide a first class education combined with fully integrated employability skills, cementing our ongoing working relationships with our business partners.
The David Nieper Academy has a clear distinctive character due to the integrated involvement of its prestigious business partners. High profile local businesses, most, being either international or national household names such as Thorntons, Denby Pottery, John Smedley, Owen Taylor, Bowmer and Kirkland alongside David Nieper are committed to bringing the world of work and 21st Century employment practices into every classroom. Practical contextual Applied learning has been proven to assist all students in retaining and understanding more fully the concepts and principles taught in the classroom. We are looking for a candidate who will embrace this approach and ensure that David Nieper Academy is adopting this approach through its world class learning pedagogies.
The David Nieper Academy is a newly formed academy in Alfreton. A new school building opened in early 2017 therefore this is an immensely exciting time to be joining the academy and being a key component in the future development.
