Nicci was very warm, welcoming and enthusiastic about the content she delivered

Nicci was very warm, welcoming and enthusiastic about the content she delivered during the MADE training for some of our Year 9 and 10 students on working through and setting their Goals and Aspirations. She welcomed questions and had prizes for everyone that volunteered answers which kept students engaged throughout. It was a pleasure to see her speak to our students as she had examples from her life and others to show students the end results of putting what she was teaching them into practice. I've since passed on some of the booklets to my colleagues as I genuinely believe the content is very suitable for everyone including teachers! And I hope to use them myself as soon as possible. -

We’ve had another fantastic day of workshops

We’ve had another fantastic day of workshops with Rob; many thanks for all of your help with the organisation with this. Looking forward to receiving the impact report; Rob really made the girls think and the staff attached to the sessions were extremely pleased with how everything went. Thanks again,

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.

James pushed them during the session to overcome barriers to achieve their very best

Wow! The sessions run on Friday by James were fantastic and the feedback from students and staff has been so positive. Having spoken to a few students, they said that they felt really positive about their future, to follow their dreams and not to give up. They said James pushed them during the session to overcome barriers to achieve their very best. The teachers that were fortunate to be in the sessions spoke very highly of James. We are so pleased that James enjoyed inspiring our students and the fact that he spoke so highly of our students and school has meant a lot to us all. Please pass on my thanks to James, and we look forward to welcoming him back again in due course.

The teachers with the group really enjoyed it and were furiously taking notes!

Joe delivered an excellent session - everyone enjoyed it and found it useful. The teachers with the group really enjoyed it and were furiously taking notes! It was a hard to engage group of lads and Joe was brilliant at keeping them focused on the session. The revision techniques he delivered were excellent and were aimed at the right level for the group. What Joe managed to get the group taking part in throughout the session was truly amazing and inspiring. The motivational aspect was great and very much needed for the group - something that we weren't quite aware of when we booked you but I feel that the questions that Joe was asking the group really got through to some of them. Please pass on our thanks to Joe - it was a difficult, though lovely, group to work with and he did amazingly. Looking forward to working with you again in the future.

Some saying it’s the best talk they’ve ever had

We had James deliver the ‘goals and aspirations’ workshop today at Callywith College. It was pitched so perfectly it’s like he got into my brain or something. It was exactly what we were after. Today's theme at college was all about aiming high and believing in yourself and his talk fitted this perfectly. We’ve had a whole week of events and James was by far the best bit of the week. Staff and students have said it’s the best talk they’ve been to all year with some saying it’s the best talk they’ve ever had. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The workshop was delivered brilliantly

The workshop was delivered brilliantly by Sander, he had students (and staff) fully engaged and everyone walked away from the event in a positive mood having learned something new to help them in their studies (or their work). The feedback has been so very positive and we are all looking forward to the next one on the 20th June.

Motivational and aspirational!

James did a great job today, it really focused students thinking and helped them to plan ahead - setting targets and taking responsibility for their own learning. Motivational and aspirational!

Young people starting to think positively about their future

James has been great. I have been able to see the young people starting to think positively about their future and get excited about working hard to reach their goals. James' delivery is inspiring and engaging, he is clearly passionate about the message of the session. He has held the kids attention throughout and enabled them to reflect on their attitudes. The teachers have been telling me that they would like more sessions by MADE in the school so I’m sure I will be getting in touch again soon! Thanks for your help at this event.

Focus on big decisions about GCSE options and further in their future

We were pleased to welcome MADE back for a second visit delivering the Goals & Aspirations workshop to Year 9, and it did not disappoint. Joe has a lively and enthusing delivery that really helped students focus on big decisions about GCSE options and further in their future. It gave them more confidence in how to set goals and then pathways to achieve them. It’s great to have such an engaging and interactive experience (we really liked the prizes!) and great to hear how many of our students felt inspired. We already have another workshop booked and hope to be able to work with Joe and MADE again beyond that. Thank you!
