New opportunity

This year, we have a new opportunity linked to the Elevate Award: students are invited to join the DkIT Enhancement Panel.  This is a panel of volunteer students who are interested in sharing their experiences and providing feedback and advice to inform and support activities that to enhance the student experience.    This is a great opportunity to develop and demonstrate employability skills such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking and professional confidence.
