July 27 Distinctions

The Statement of intent is a vital component when it comes to successful Distinctions Assessment so it is vital to get it right.

Richard Brayshaw FRPS is one of the societies experts when it comes to statement writing and the East Midlands Distinctions study group have invited him along to talk to them about Associate and Fellowship applications. Although Richard is an assessor for Contemporary and you might be looking at other genres the group invite all to drop in and learn more about writing statements of intent.
