This year, Dv8 students will be given the chance to undertake a mandatory work experience placement. We have some very valuable and exciting opportunities with local businesses and organisations. See below which organisations we are working with, and a bit about each one.

There is likely to be a lot of interest and competition for places, so please register your young person’s interest by filling out the form below.


Healthwatch is a community interest company (CIC), with a role to represent the views of people that use health and social care services in Brighton & Hove. The work experience placement would entail marketing activities, and information gathering for a campaign to share young people's insights on mental health services.


Give Street Project CIC is a registered Community Interest Company set up to bring communities together to help and support people, families and pets who are experiencing homelessness, low income and food insecurity. Students who choose this placement will be involved in the promotion and marketing of pop-up donation events.


Platform B is a non-for-profit Brighton based radio station. The station is directed by a new wave of DJs, Producers and Presenters who are re-imagining and diversifying the medium. This placement would involve the coordination of a pop-up broadcasting event. Further details to be confirmed.


Berwick Church has aims to offer the church and its natural surroundings as a spiritual sanctuary and place of retreat, creativity and reflection. Students would take part in a Work Experience placement or Social Action Project here.
