It gave real life examples
and provoking statistics
that motivate.
I was clueless before this session, now I know I can end up with an excellent personal statement.
Made a boring
and difficult task
significantly easier.
This ‘in-person’ or ‘online & live’ workshop has every student actually writing their Personal Statement.

Students leave this workshop having written a first draft of their individual personal statement for university or a covering letter for apprenticeships/employment
AND an action plan to enhance it further.

Our Workshop...

  • Makes an excellent fast start to the application process - tutors typically have a first draft of the personal statement/covering letter by the end of the same day.

  • Is tailored to complement existing application processes. 

  • Lessens the ‘drag’ on the final submission of personal statements (in the students’ desire for perfection). 

  • Enables tutors and subject staff to spend more time fine-tuning rather than in the creation of a personal statement or covering letter.

  • Reduces stress and anxiety for students given they know the personal statement/covering letter is critical for their future. 

  • Allows students to focus more on their studies in Year 13, avoiding potential distraction and loss of concentration in lessons. 

  • Helps generate even higher quality personal statements/covering letters which can be submitted earlier and that sometimes facilitate better/more offers.

Having a good personal statement/covering letter 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 (or employer) should choose him/her above all the other applicants.
It's therefore essential that we do all we can to help students compete.

 "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 time have some fun too!"
