The Youth Work Conference


So, at first I was excited, yet nervous as to what to expect for such a big conference. With the itinerary made very simple and straightforward by the Reps department, particularly Grace, for me I did not get lost at all, woohoo!!

I think now it is time to add how amazing this opportunity was for me!! I am so grateful to Coventry University Students’ Union who could offer this to me, with absolutely no cost also, bonus! I think that’s what makes our students’ union so great.

On arrival to the end of the conference I was so absorbed not just by all the freebies, cheeky, but all the knowledge and people I met. It has truly helped me increase my knowledge on my course, attending lectures and having your standard workshops are great, to an extent. I mean we all learn in different ways, maybe some of us need a bit more audio to our learning and that’s what I was given. An opportunity where I could enjoy my day and also learn so much more and expose myself to many more opportunities and employers.

I would deeply like to thank CUSU for this and hopefully this opportunity can soon become MORE available to MORE students because it will also look great on your CV!
