Students genuinely felt better about themselves

Students from our school, The Cheadle Academy, attended two Made Training workshops held at Staffordshire University on the 11th October 2017. The students involved included our most disengaged and least motivated students. The workshop was considered to be an excellent vehicle for them to not only improve their grades but also their confidence. Most of our weaker academic performance comes from lack of confidence not lack of intelligence. The 'Self MADE Motivation' workshop proved to be an excellent means of delivering that extra confidence and self belief. Students genuinely felt better about themselves after the event and felt they could achieve more, in fact just being able to recognise they could was a big step for some. They also felt a sense of entitlement to success, i.e. it was for them too. The 'Exams MADE Easy' workshop was equally effective in delivering a set of skills and demonstrating how what seems impossible can be achieved in a very short time, meaning that over the coming months, if the same set of skills were applied to their GCSEs then they should achieve a lot more than they think they can. Again, this linked to a belief that they could do something rather than they cant  ... or at least cant yet.
