Personal Statement Writing Conference
Lots of organisations like to talk about personal statements, however during our Personal Statement Writing Conference, students also WRITE their first draft.
In addition, students leave the conference knowing how to enhance itheir personal statement further, to ensure it becomes an effective and high quality personal statement which appeals to universities or employers.
There's plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get help. Practical energisers are used throughout the session (focusing on creating a good first impression) keeping the students refreshed and ready to produce quality work.
Schools invite us back year after year to run this conference as the benefits are huge:
Having a good personal statement can make the difference between getting the university course (or employment) of choice and being rejected. A good personal statement helps a student to stand out from the crowd, and explains why the university should choose him/her above all the other applicants. It's therefore essential that we do all we can to help students compete.
The Director of Sixth Form at one of our regular schools said:
“A superbly organised event that gives structure and relevance to a pupil’s personal statement. Highly effective in making students think for themselves and at the same have some fun too!”
Students consistently feedback the benefits of this conference:
"Made writing the first draft of my personal statement easy and has given me a solid basis to work from."
"Very informative, it really helped me with writing a personal statement and gave us an insight in to university entry."
"I liked everything - I wrote loads because of the information and encouragement the workshop gave."
"It made the whole task much easier than I thought and much less stressful."
"Gave me a really good head start and got me thinking about what gaps I need to fill in order to make my UCAS application successful - thank you!"
