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.

Hi Corin, The girls absolutely loved Joe’s sessions! The staff present were also very impressed and the early feedback from our girls on our evaluation ‘system’ has been excellent. Thanks for all your support in arranging this.

Students genuinely felt better about themselves

Students from our school, The Cheadle Academy, attended two Made Training workshops held at Staffordshire University on the 11th October 2017. The students involved included our most disengaged and least motivated students. The workshop was considered to be an excellent vehicle for them to not only improve their grades but also their confidence. Most of our weaker academic performance comes from lack of confidence not lack of intelligence. The 'Self MADE Motivation' workshop proved to be an excellent means of delivering that extra confidence and self belief. Students genuinely felt better about themselves after the event and felt they could achieve more, in fact just being able to recognise they could was a big step for some. They also felt a sense of entitlement to success, i.e. it was for them too. The 'Exams MADE Easy' workshop was equally effective in delivering a set of skills and demonstrating how what seems impossible can be achieved in a very short time, meaning that over the coming months, if the same set of skills were applied to their GCSEs then they should achieve a lot more than they think they can. Again, this linked to a belief that they could do something rather than they cant  ... or at least cant yet.

It was enlightening!

Danny came to Saxmundham Free School to deliver to our upper school for their second welcome day back in September. He was energising and engaging with the students. Danny was inspiring and it was a great way for the students to start. Danny is very adaptable with his resources and delivery. The students now feel much more organised with their forward thinking, time management, how to prioritise their tasks and were given some very clear and enjoyable recall and study techniques. It was enlightening for a lot of the students and reflected our high expectations within the school. It is a fantastic way to get the students to adopt the right mindset to prepare for their GCSE's.
