Personal Development Week 2021.

Personal Development Week is your chance to take time to reflect on your learning so far, try something new, build your confidence, set future goals, and reconnect with the wider Christ Church community. And with a range of online events and activities there is something for everyone. 

Personal Development Week takes place 25 to 29 January 2021 for students on semester calendars, but all students are welcome to take part.

Taking time to reflect on your personal development can be good for your wellbeing and happiness, but it can also help you build confidence, develop new skills, enhance your employability and plan for your future.
