Our online & live ‘Personal Statement Writing Workshop’ can get all your personal statements drafted in a morning and submitted by the end of the day! Students are guided and coached throughout, enabling them to actually write a first draft of their individual personal statement during the workshop. This first draft (and action plan to enhance it further) can then easily be submitted to staff on the same day.
The workshop lays a strong foundation and makes an excellent first start to the application process. It reduces some of the stress and anxiety around the process, helping students to stop procrastinating, get the first draft done and ultimately make it more likely that they get their first choice university, first choice course. In addition, staff then get to spend their valuable time fine tuning not creating.
Here are a few comments from Heads of Sixth Form:
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!
We hold the Personal Statement Writing Workshop in the last part of the summer term and I can certainly say it helps reduce my workload. All of my students who applied for higher education received offers and some of the thanks
must go to The Life Skills Company.
Here are a few comments from students:
The thought of writing a personal statement scared me, but this has given me peace of mind and calmed me.
I was clueless before this session, now I know I can end up with an excellent personal statement.
I have got a list of actions to make my personal statement stand out.
Completely helped me and gave me a sense of urgency, otherwise I would have delayed action.
Made a boring and difficult task significantly easier.
I had no idea before, I feel so much more confident in creating a personal statement.
I like how it gave insight on how competitive it is as it highlighted the importance of your personal statements.
Very informative and helpful to those who have no clue what to study.
