    Hi,
    I currently writing my personal statement for a PGCE in secondary.
    In the work experience paragraph - should I include I have helps every summer with children with disabilities, eg: organising functions, conferences, and fundraising.

    should i include this, or does it really apply. As i only have 47 lines i dont want to waste a paragraph if it wont help my application..

    If you feel that it's impacted why you want to teach, and can explain this, then I'd shove it in. You need to relate your desire to teach to your experiences with children (not just confined to school settings) .
