Our Employment and Skills Academies are designed to ensure all Derby College Students are prepared to make a smooth transition from education to employment and meet the needs of employers.
As a local, regional or national employer you could become part of this and help shape your future workforce and search for young talented individuals.
Students will follow a journey of learning at Derby College and take part in an extra programme of employer engagement activities. This unique combination of learning and employer engagement ensures that our students gain the skills, attitudes and knowledge employers need from young people in the work place.
The Employment and Skills Academies activities broaden the opportunities for our students and employers. They help our young people synthesise knowledge into practice whilst they are achieving their qualifications at College, this therefore helps them attain higher grades. They prepare young people for the world of work and ensure our employers help design and shape our students learning experience, so that they leave the College with the right skills and attitudes for their chosen career.
