CHORUS EDUCATION TRUST
The school is responsible for a number of events and activities that happen throughout each year to help raise funds.
Start shopping at smile.amazon.co.uk to raise money for the PTFA at Hope Valley College every time you shop with Amazon...and it won't cost you a penny! Get started by following these instructions and selecting 'Parents, Teachers And Friends Of Hope Valley College' as your chosen charity.
Shopping through Amazon Smile will give you access to all the products in Amazon, at the same price as Amazon, but every purchase will generate funds for the school.
Date to be confirmed
The Severn Trent Mountain Challenge is the perfect event for teams to take a break from busy schedules, put their heads together and walk their way through challenging terrain. Setting off from Hope Valley College, walkers navigate across the glorious Dark Peak area – with map reading skills a necessity! Those who take part then enjoy spectacular views and exhilarating inclines before descending back through Edale to Hope Valley College for refreshments and hot food.
If you could lend a hand or would like some further information, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Do you have expertise in a particular area that would be of interest to our students? Do you have a job or career that they may wish to find out more about? Perhaps you are a former student and want to pass on your life lessons?
If so, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact us for a discussion about what could be possible.
Work Experience Placements
CAREERS SUPPORT FROM EMPLOYERS
Interested in offering your time to our young people but don’t know where to start? Check out our menu of business participation for a way to get involved.
Each year all Year 10 students complete a period of work experience to develop insight into the day-to-day role of an employee in an organisation, building on skills learned in the classroom and seeing the application of those skills in real life situations.
Mock interviews provide our students with an opportunity to practice for a situation which many will have never been in before. During the session, employers ask a range of interview questions, provide feedback on how the student performed and offer advice on how to improve their technique.
Talk to our students about your industry and your journey. This could be as a 15 minute assembly to a whole year group; to a class of children as part of their timetabled lessons for between 15 – 50 minutes; or to a small group who are already interested in your profession.
We are particularly in need of mentors to work with our students with additional learning needs. These children often have the most challenging experience when it comes to finding a job. Mentoring, work shadowing and placements can really open doors to them in a meaningful way. If you are interested in working with one of our students we can provide help and information about learning disabilities, and support you to make a real, tangible difference in a young person’s life.
