What is dv8 careers day?

The Dv8 Careers Day is in place to give our students the opportunity to explore what options and pathways are out there for their next steps in work or education. You'll have the chance to speak with careers advisers, other Further Education providers and Into University. You'll be able to take part in creative skills workshops and have Q&As with professionals who have made it in their industry.

Dv8 Careers Day will be held on....

Bexhill: Wednesday 14th March, 10.15am - 4.45pm

Brighton: Wednesday 21st March, 10.15am - 4.45pm

HOW DOES THE DAY WORK?

It is your responsibility to make sure that you attend one activity per session. Some of the activities will overlap with each other and some workshops are only available in specific sessions, so you need to double check you don't sign up to sessions that are running at the same time!

Explore what workshops are available to you below and sign up to a session by clicking on the registration buttons. You'll complete a very short form letting us know that you are going to attend that session. If you would like to change what sessions you attend after you have registered, please speak to your tutor.
