Rob was brilliant and the delivery was excellent

The girls have really enjoyed the sessions; Rob was brilliant and the delivery was excellent. The verbal feedback I have had from the pupils has been very positive and they now have a lot more ideas about revision techniques which may work for them; it will be interesting to see the impact report from yourselves. All in all, a very positive start to Year 11! Many thanks for all your help with setting this up!

If only you could reach every school in the land!

What was so inspiring about Sander's approach to learning, was that he was challenging the 'learned helplessness' so many students hold in this run up to exams. Especially, if they believe their efforts will have little effect on the level they find themselves at now - having come to the end of 11 years in education! However, Sander turned that all on its head today by completely changing this mindset! By simply assuring them that by the end of the session they WILL memorise a vast set of information in a short amount of time, he started to sew the first seeds of a new found confidence in their own ability. He backed that up with several memory strategies and POW! the entire room was alive throwing the information back at him. Varying the tone and sound of his delivery and more importantly nurturing that new found confidence with positivity, encouragement, value and fun, he had every student engaged. By the end of the session he had proved and had them believe, that if they can learn this new way to focus, not only these forthcoming exams but all future learning is now well within their reach! If only you could reach every school in the land! So impressed!

Pitched at exactly the right level

James was a fantastic trainer that really grabbed the attention of all the students. The content that he delivered was pitched at exactly the right level and I’ve since had a number of students tell me that they will be using his method of revision going forward. Many thanks!

Inspiring and perfectly suited for the pupils that took part

I thought today was fantastic and a great experience for all those involved. The pupils will have taken away many revision techniques and skills and it was a really positive session for them all. The goals and aspirations session was inspiring and perfectly suited for the pupils that took part. Sander was engaging and held the attention of the pupils for the duration of each workshop. The whole day was well organised and very professional, and the prizes were a lovely touch which were very well received by the delighted winners! I do hope that we are able to work together again in the future.

The girls came out feeling encouraged and inspired

The girls and parents have both said how helpful they found the sessions, and recommended that she would definitely repeat them in future years. The girls enjoyed Danny's delivery, and definitely came out feeling encouraged and inspired.

Hi Corin, The girls absolutely loved Joe’s sessions! The staff present were also very impressed and the early feedback from our girls on our evaluation ‘system’ has been excellent. Thanks for all your support in arranging this.

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.

It was enlightening!

Danny came to Saxmundham Free School to deliver to our upper school for their second welcome day back in September. He was energising and engaging with the students. Danny was inspiring and it was a great way for the students to start. Danny is very adaptable with his resources and delivery. The students now feel much more organised with their forward thinking, time management, how to prioritise their tasks and were given some very clear and enjoyable recall and study techniques. It was enlightening for a lot of the students and reflected our high expectations within the school. It is a fantastic way to get the students to adopt the right mindset to prepare for their GCSE's.
