The sessions were excellent due to his calm manner and interaction

The Rapid Revision sessions have received some great feedback especially from our year 11 boys who have spoken with their teachers about the different techniques Joe showed them and how they feel more positive as they revise for their mocks later this month. Joe’s delivery of the sessions were excellent due to his calm manner and interaction with the students. He explained the different techniques clearly and in an engaging way. The setting for the workshops wasn’t ideal as we were a little cramped to say the least however this did not detract from the message that Joe was getting across. I would certainly look to doing the sessions again in the future and also the ones where parents can be involved. A great success!

The boys took a real shine to him

It was fabulous. Rob really engaged the boys from the outset not only with the materials that he used but also with his own energetic style and delivery (he reminded me of me, which is a compliment in itself). The fact that the class is made up of 26 boys, some of whom are the most challenging in the school, meant that the day could have been a real challenge for some teachers. However, Rob’s professionalism, energy, drive and motivation absolutely shone through. The boys took a real shine to him and have asked if they can work with him again-a sign that he made a real impression on them. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Rob, and Lucy from Staffs Uni for giving us this opportunity to work with your company. Thanks again, Dave and the boys.

Great value for money in comparison to what else is out there

We thought the day was excellent and great value for money in comparison to what else is out there. Rob was a fantastic trainer who engaged with the students and, even though he had only just met them, seamlessly understood their needs and engaged with them effortlessly. The materials and ideas presented to the students were well packaged and will prove highly useful for the year groups' revision strategies. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Joe’s delivery was excellent

It was an excellent day, the variety of different workshops on offer engaged all of our Year 11 pupils. Joe's delivery was excellent he made each of the different workshops, fun, engaging and informative ensuring all pupils interacted and came away from the sessions having learnt new skills. We would definitely look to have MADE training back in to deliver to our pupils in the future

I really can’t praise him highly enough.

The feedback was excellent from the students and especially the parents. James was an absolute star throughout the day, even dealing with the technical conundrum when the power went! I hope he got home OK!? The students today have been discussing it in PD and it has proved a valuable starting point in getting them thinking forward and to their exams and one we can keep referencing. I really can't praise him highly enough. I've copied an email form a parent below so you can get a sample of feedback but there was a lot of verbal praise too last night.

I honestly have to say this is the best one I’ve ever been involved with

Rob the trainer was incredible, he had the students eating out of his hand even before the session started. Bearing in mind this group had been in one room all week and beginning to lose the will. Rob’s mannerism and enthusiasm was so infectious and within minutes you could feel the atmosphere in the room change, and the students began to become engaged. The sessions were paced really well, and kept everyone focussed including two naughty staff (hehe) it was interactive, thought provoking and really inspirational, the students interacted not only with Rob, but were engaging and encouraging other students. I have worked in schools for a long time, and seen many outside agencies come into school to deliver their workshops. I honestly have to say this is the best one I’ve ever been involved with. I will certainly recommend this to my other colleagues (or maybe not and just keep the courses for my year group) ! Please pass onto Rob my sincere thanks and gratitude for really lifting me today I have left the workshop feeling energised and motivated, ready to face the next week. Thanks again

It was wonderful to see so many engaged and inspired

I just wanted to express my sincere thanks for the wonderful experience the pupils at EPCHS had. It was wonderful to see so many engaged and inspired by the techniques. Joe was fantastic and had a great way with the students who at times can be quite passive... I look forward to working with the company again.

So many staff have said how fantastic the training was!

That feedback report is great. I had a great day too and so many staff have said how fantastic the training was! Many have already been to see me to tell me how they have been implementing some of the ideas Joe gave them. There was a real buzz among students/parents too on the day. Thank you

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!
