A number of our students stopped Danny in the corridor afterwards to thank him

We had Danny in yesterday and the sessions went really well. Year 9 found 'The Lighthouse' sessions useful, with many setting themselves really aspirational targets for their futures and Year 11 got a lot of useful tips for supporting their revision from Exams Made Easy. A number of our students stopped Danny in the corridor afterwards to thank him for the session. We also had a number of parents attend the workshop in the evening. They fed back that the session was very useful and they liked having the opportunity to ask questions and share some of their concerns. I thought the workshop was excellent and the resources useful and easy to use.

Everybody loved James! He gave a great workshop to all 3 groups

Morning Corin, Everybody loved James! He gave a great workshop to all 3 groups. I attended the parents' evening and made copious notes for my own children and for my teaching too. We would love to have him back again to deliver the Exams MADE Easy for the remaining 200 students who missed out and also for the staff (100 of us)!

Some said it was the best session they had ever had at Walton

Thank you for the session you delivered for Year 13s on Friday at Walton. The students were very enthusiastic about the whole session. They all found it really useful and some have already started to use the techniques recommended. They thought Joe was really enthusiastic and had some very good exam techniques. Some said it was the best session they had ever had at Walton! Praise indeed – as we know students can be the harshest critics! The staff who observed Joe were very complimentary about the very high quality of the sessions, Joe’s professionalism and the highly engaging delivery. I would thoroughly recommend Joe to other schools and look forward to being able to work with him again at Walton. With best wishes

Another great day from our perspective

Hi Corin, Another great day from our perspective. Really enjoyed watching James and Nicky at work. On my way to duty after school I walked with a group of year 10 students who reeled off the 12 most populated countries as if it was the easiest thing in the World. Powerful stuff! A great session in the afternoon with Sander – focusing on our under performers in Y12. I was able to have a discussion with Sander beforehand and he tailored the session to meet their very specific needs. Really useful process. Many thanks again Seb ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi Corin I would agree with Seb. We are very hopeful that we have empowered Year 10 to really consolidate their learning this year ready for their Year 10 exams. This is turn should leave less of a mountain to climb next year. We have seen current Year 11 more armed with various self-made revision resources than in previous years, which I think shows how many of them have taken the training you gave last year and embedded it in their skills repertoire. Fingers crossed that we see that in the outcomes in summer! Kind regards Laranya

Very experienced and engaging trainers who responded brilliantly to the needs of the students

The sessions were packed full of practical ideas that we can now build on as a school. Very experienced and engaging trainers who responded brilliantly to the needs of the students. They worked brilliantly as a double act and commanded the attention of the room of 150 students well. The initial feedback from students is overwhelmingly positive. The session for parents and carers was also very helpful and some great discussion was had as to the best working environment for children at home and especially around the hot topic of electronic devices. Many thanks for everything.

It was a brilliant day and I think both students and staff got a lot from the sessions with James!

It was a brilliant day and I think both students and staff got a lot from the sessions with James! Tanya has shared this: "We’ve had really good feedback from students and staff. They found it really engaging and helpful. Our Engineering students attended more than one session and enjoyed both." I thought that the sessions were engaging, interactive and well planned. James created a welcoming environment where students felt able to contribute, ask questions and get fully involved in the activities. I think the parents who attended the evening session also found it very beneficial and weren't afraid to get involved and try out the revision techniques! Many stayed after the session to talk more with James and our team which I think demonstrates how comfortable they were and how useful they found the workshop. Thank you again!

We look forward to working with Made in the future

The workshops were brilliant thank you for organising and Sander for the delivery. The feedback from both the pupils and staff has been positive and there are some really workable strategies they can both use in the future. Sander’s delivery allowed the pupils to remain engaged throughout and ultimately get the most from the workshop. As a senior leader at the school it was a pleasure to the see the pupils behaving so well and this was testament to the engaging delivery methods and the content on show. Overall a really positive experience for all the pupils and staff involved. We look forward to working with Made in the future.

Their professional, friendly manner, flexibility and organisation have been superb

We have worked with MADE Training over the last year or so on a number of events for Years 9 – 13. Their professional, friendly manner, flexibility and organisation have been superb. All of the workshops have been delivered by engaging, professional and experienced trainers, who immediately capture the pupils’ and students’ attention. The workshops are focused, interesting, relevant and always pitched at just the right level. They have all had a positive impact on everyone who has attended, providing our pupils and students with vital skills and strategies to enhance their studies and raise their aspirations. The parents’ workshops have also been very well received, with parental feedback giving a strong impression that they leave the workshops with enhanced knowledge about revision strategies, tools to help their children, and with a feeling of empowerment. Thank you!
