I love my placement, every day is full of information tasks and activities that relate directly to creative careers but also general business dos and don’ts, like organisation of finances etc. I’m really enjoying it!

I got to complete three placements whilst at Dv8 at that all gave me different skills and experience. Plus I got to spend time in the studio and record my first pieces of music! I'm really grateful for the oportunities I was given and managed to find an Apprenticeship since leaving.
