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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!
