"It is a real pleasure to participate in EST's Media LIVE! event, especially alongsidesuch an interesting range of industry speakers. The biggest plaudits should always go to the student attendees though. The Media LIVE! audiences are as engaged, challenging, passionate, talented and articulate an audience of young people as you could hope to meet!"

What You Say
Overall the media conference was excellent for relevance and the students fournd it around a 9 or 10 for engaging. Sir John Deane's College
On site support was excellent. Staff were friendly and accommodating whatever the time of day. Hereford Sixth Form College
I cannot recommend this trip enough, I’ve already started plugging it to other media teachers in other schools! Homewood School
My Media students loved the conference, they were engaged and felt that the information presented was relevant and gave them food for thought. The speakers were all excellent and the content was relevant to what the students are learning especially the A2 media programme. The students highly enjoyed it! Bacons College
EST are always available for support over the phone so the service that they provide is always really good. I'm very happy to work with them. The conferences are always great with some good opportunities for students to access speakers that they wouldn't ordinarily be able to. The speakers were excellent again this year and very inspiring. Excellent service as always and very reliable when needed e.g. with the bad weather the week prior to the trip. Garforth Academy
Everything we asked for you delivered so we are very happy with the trip overall. We loved the bright lime green outfits (nearly as much as the staff :) ) - it made them easy to find and this helped a lot in the chaos of arrival amongst hundreds of guests! ...the evening of arrival was excellent and the staff went out of their way to serve us and make us feel at home. They came over to chat to us and they were friendly and professional. Bishop Foxs School
