Directory of Voluntary Careers Speakers
What is it?
The Directory of Voluntary Careers Speakers (DVCS) is a free service that puts teachers, lecturers and careers advisors in touch with Society members who are willing to visit schools and other institutions to talk about their careers in psychology and give students a better idea of what it’s like to work as a psychologist or in related fields.
How do I get in touch with a Voluntary Careers Speaker?
To contact voluntary careers speakers search the DVCS.
How do I become a Voluntary Careers Speaker?
Becoming a Voluntary Careers Speaker is a great way of sharing your knowledge and personal experience and inspiring the next generation of psychologists. It is also a great addition to your CV. We welcome contributions from all Chartered and Graduate Members of the Society. If you choose to attend an event we can provide you with a selection of the Society’s careers materials and other promotional leaflets.
The DVCS is now also a searchable list on the Society’s website.
This means that if you join the DVCS your profile will be available to view on the internet by members of the public.
