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 have been so impressed with the content and delivery of this session

Exams MADE Easy was an excellent workshop. Each key revision strategy was explored in an interactive and collaborative format. Students received instant feedback to show how much they could now recall after each task and the effectiveness of each technique meant that they all experienced success and gained confidence. Joe was a super trainer and students found it really useful. I am extremely grateful that you shared your time, expertise and enthusiasm with them. Another great programme from MADE! I have been so impressed with the content and delivery of this session and 'The Lighthouse'! [delivered previously]. I attended the Parents’ session at Oxstalls campus with the GROWS team yesterday evening and it too was excellent. Often this type of event in a school is in the form of a talk which isn’t as interactive, engaging or as likely to facilitate discussions and changes to their study environment at home. I do hope that we might be able to host one at St Peter’s in the future if we are able to book the Exams Made Easy workshop again. I highly recommend this workshop!

Lots of thanks and praise as parents were leaving

Last night was very well thought of [by parents and teachers]. Lots of thanks and praise as parents were leaving and I received the following comment from a parent via e-mail this morning: "It was really helpful and informative. I learnt a lot about how to help and support my child." Personally, I wish I had experienced this 40 years ago when taking my O Levels. I can now see why "last minute cramming" on the school bus was not an effective revision technique, though I was convinced of it's power at the time!

In the times of shrinking school budgets, it was money well spent.

As usual, the students really engaged with the sessions run by Joe. Student feedback was very positive about the techniques Joe demonstrated. For the first time we booked the parents session and again feedback was excellent. I would have no hesitation in booking Made Training again and in the times of shrinking school budgets, it was money well spent. Thanks again for an outstanding day.

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.
