Baker Clause

As a Trust, we have key aims to ensure the life chances of our students. These are to raise the aspirations of our students and to engage their parents, careers and families in this process. Delta Academies Trust invite our learners, along with their family members to our Careers & Aspirations Day on Friday 23rd November 2018. The fair is open from 11am-7pm.

Learners will have the opportunity to visit the stands of over 40 Employers, Colleges, Universities and Apprenticeship Providers, such as DHL, Polypipe, South Yorkshire Police & Fire Services, The Armed Forces, Universities and Colleges from across the region and our partners at the Universities of Oxford & Cambridge. This is the chance for our learners to ask the important questions for their next steps, curriculum choices for GCSE, A Level and careers and destinations at Post 16 and 18.

If you would like to attend this as an employer or other educational establishment please email careers@donvalleyacademy.org.uk
