For me, the Debrett's programme has been an extremely well thought out and enriching experience. Initially I was nervous as I didn't know quite what to expect, however I was made to feel welcome as soon as I walked through the door of the Young Achiever house, a generously appointed townhouse which overlooked the common. Luckily, there was a hairdryer waiting for me in my dorm, which was an extremely welcome sight! The combination of activities and lessons were extremely useful and expertly informed, with many of the lessons being led by industry leaders. Each of the tutors were very welcoming and friendly, and took the time to create a personal bond with every student. Overall, I strongly recommend the programme and I wish I wasn't too old to take part again next year!
