DV8 Access to Apprenticeships Event

On Friday 12th September we hosted an Access to Apprenticeship Event, which featured talks from Alexis our Director, Sacha our Principal at DV8 Academy as well as tutors and students who attended DV8 in the past.

One of our ex Tutors Fusion (@iitsfusion) gave advice to aspiring Apprentices on how to make a good impression and how to stand out from the crowd. Since teaching at DV8 he has started his own creative youth agency called “Industry In The Streets” which enables young people to gain experience within the creative industry by working with established companies and practitioners by arranging and planning events and seminars as well as marketing campaigns for brands.

Hadija, an ex student who completed a level 3 course in events and promotion was also on hand to give expert advice on how to break into the industry and what steps you can take to get you where you want to be. After completing her level 3 course, she went on to do an Apprenticeship in Live Events and Promotion which enabled her to become the Management Executive at EGA Music Group.

Individual discussions took place with hopeful students to help them gain the right advice on how to build up a portfolio and how to network with people in the desired industry which was then followed by enrolment onto a chosen course which would allow them to then complete an Apprenticeship.

DV8 & SoundSkool – IEINEI Recording Studio Visit

Daniel Walker Lead Tutor of ADP (Artist Development & Performance at Sound Skool) and Senior Manager Kofi Ankrah took a group of lucky learners to IEINEI Recording Studio in North West London to see what it was like to record in a professional capacity.

Before they started with the session, Engineer JC answered a few questions and gave some valuable advice. Having worked with the likes of; Chipmunk, Krept and Konan, Ed Sheran and G-Frsh, this guy knows what he’s taking about!

The session went really well with the learners creating three tracks in one day.

Here are the tracks mastered during this trip.
