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!

Danny is an asset to your organisation

The Exams made Easy sessions were fantastic and Danny is an asset to your organisation – it was refreshing to have someone delivering this type of workshop who was enthusiastic and motivating. All of our students came out of the session with confidence and motivation to apply the strategies instantly. We are hoping to book him up to work with some other year groups in the future.

Really engaged the students

The workshop was very well delivered by Sander and really engaged the students. The soft skills taught in the session were easily transferable to their current studies and all the students felt they could use these going forward. I felt Stepping Up was an excellent alternative to introducing students to different study skills.

How to become 21st century learners

12th February 2018 - Once again a different group of Year 11 pupils attended a MADE revision workshop held at Lawn Manor Academy from 9.45am till 2pm. The training was inspirational for pupils! The techniques used were vital for our pupils to understand how to become 21st century learners. Some of the comments included: “Our pupils thought the workshop was really fun! The facilitator provided us with really useful exam preparation strategies to create cue cards, number sequences and memory palace was. We learnt a variety of revision techniques”. “I was happy as I was interested in what I learnt today” . Impressive as this is the first day of the holidays! Thank you to MADE who ran the training and to Study Higher who helped organise and fund the event. Our pupils really appreciated it and had lots of fun! 111 pupils in total attended this workshop either in Oct or February. We are grateful for Study Higher who paid for these events and pizza very much appreciated!

I, as a teacher, learnt a lot from him in one hour!

Just a short feedback on the 'Rapid Revision' session today at St. Anne's RC High School! Rob was absolutely amazing and I, as a teacher, learnt a lot from him in one hour! He was inspiring and the session was full of useful hints not just for the pupils but also for me.

It’s been the topic of conversation today!!

A fabulous day! The students and staff found it very informative; it’s been the topic of conversation today!! The students certainly had an opportunity to reflect on their current practices and learn lots of new strategies to hopefully help them get their GCSE results. Thanks to Joe (and his very impressive memory number rhyme!)

Exams MADE easy? Most definitely!

It was brilliant - who would have thought two hours focusing on exam preparation could be so enjoyable! It was fun, focused and fast paced. The students were engaged from beginning to end and their feedback was overwhelmingly positive. They have left school this afternoon with a wealth of strategies and techniques that will help them face the challenges of the weeks and months ahead. Exams MADE easy? Most definitely! Thanks for everything.

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.

I would not hesitate to book MADE again

Today has been great, thank you so much for all your help with the planning side of it and to Danny and Joe for their hard work. The students really enjoyed the sessions and it was great hearing the conversations that were coming out of today. Teachers are now keen to book sessions for parents and I am so pleased to hear that Haygrove have booked you for their Y11s revision. Students left the day feeling motivated and keen to achieve their full potential. It was lovely to hear the conversations coming out of the activities and to see the students looking so proud of their lighthouses. The trainers were full of energy and left a lasting impression on the young people. I would not hesitate to book MADE again and we are now looking into KS5 sessions and parent sessions. Thanks so much again,
