Dear Applicant

Thank you for showing an interest in the post of Cover Supervisor at the David Nieper Academy.

Our Academy is sponsored by the Christopher 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. We are a growing academy now of 780 students 11-18 and will soon be at our full capacity of 850 students 11-18. Our September 2022 Ofsted Inspection graded the academy as ‘Good in all areas’, a fantastic improvement from the ‘inadequate’ Ofsted rating when we took over the academy - and we endeavour to build on this as we grow and develop further. We are currently the only academy within the Trust but our plans are to grow in the near 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 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 Denby Pottery, Owen Taylor & Sons Ltd, Bowmer & Kirkland, Places for People, Equip UK alongside David Nieper Ltd, 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.

If you like the sound of the academy and Trust and are keen to be instrumental in its future success, then we would like to hear from you and look forward to receiving your application by Thursday 30th November 2023. Interviews likely to be week commencing 4th December 2023.

If you have any queries please contact Mrs Jacqueline Rodgers, HR Manager, via email at JRodgers@ChristopherNieperEducation.org

Yours faithfully



Mr Richard White

Head of School


The David Nieper Academy is a newly formed academy in Alfreton, Derbyshire. A brand-new school building was opened in early 2017. A key aspect of our vision is our focus on applied learning within all subject areas and across year groups. We have seen an increase in student numbers within each year group and we are looking to build on this year on year. This is an immensely exciting time to be joining the academy and being a key driver in enhancing the academic and social achievement of our students.

The Governing Body is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic cover supervisor who has the determination and drive to become an outstanding practitioner.

The Governing Body is committed to the safeguarding of children and young people, so all staff appointments are subject to employment checks and a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.

Candidates should indicate an acceptance of, and a commitment to, the Academy’s policies in relation to equality and safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

It is an offence to apply for this role if an applicant is barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children.
