Thank you for showing an interest
in the post of Teaching Assistant 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 school 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 and will be joined by at least one additional Primary school
in the very near future with plans in place for further growth over the next
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.
like the sound of the academy 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. The closing date is Monday 4th December 2023 at 9am.
