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. -

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

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!

Such interesting and interactive sessions

Yesterday went brilliantly, and I'd like to thank Joe for delivering such interesting and interactive sessions to the students. The feedback at our end is excellent, and I think that everyone who attended (including me!) had a lot to learn from the sessions. Looking forward to working together on the next event!
