Danny’s pace, content and humour had all the students thoroughly engaged and involved

Danny presented Fantastically to our students during the Exams MADE Easy session that we hosted at UTC Plymouth. Danny's pace, content and humour had all the students thoroughly engaged and involved. The interactive workbook was a great structure for the session which the students found really useful. All students commented on how they had picked up at least 1 new revision strategy to implement in this years exam season.

Well above and beyond the call of duty, but very much appreciated!

As per usual, Sander was inspirational! It was fantastic to see our year 10 and 11 pupils engaged, willingly participating and recognising that revision can be fun. Pupils felt at ease and left the session feeling empowered with useful techniques and revision tools, certainly more prepared for the challenge ahead. Sander is a fantastic trainer and great at keeping them on task and enthralled. The MAT group session left pupils feeling supported, and amazed! Particular thanks goes to him for the responses to keen ‘thumbs up’ in the canteen, and the individual chat to an exam anxious pupil during lunch break. Well above and beyond the call of duty, but very much appreciated! Looking forward to having him back next year.

Many came away feeling confident that they now had the tools to make ‘Exams Easy’

Once again we were delighted with the high quality workshops delivered by Made Training. The resources were engaging and the presentation had the right balance of theory and practice. Students loved the range of activities and the interactive nature of the sessions - many came away feeling confident that they now had the tools to make 'Exams Easy'. Rob was superb throughout and I would highly recommend.

James was outstanding – really engaging and enthusiastic.

Thank you for organising everything so quickly for us. Our students found the Rapid Revision Power Hour so useful! They were really engaged and went away armed with a number of different revision techniques to try – some even were trying some out at lunchtime when I saw them! James was outstanding – really engaging and enthusiastic. A really useful day – Thanks again.

Delivery was, as ever, very well informed, professional & engaging

Having identified a gap in our programme of exam preparation I was pleased to be able to integrate MADE training's "Exams MADE Easy" session as part of a comprehensive revision skills package for our GCSE students. Sander's delivery was, as ever, very well informed, professional & engaging. Both students and teachers developed greater understanding of a range of effective revision techniques and took away techniques that were immediately applicable to independent study & teaching.

The material was very useful and I know that many of our Y11s intends to use the techniques they were shown

Nicci ran excellent sessions with our Y11 students. She engaged the students from the start and her delivery of Pi to 36 numbers from memory was astounding! The material was very useful and I know that many of our Y11s intends to use the techniques they were shown. I also thought it was great that someone other than a teacher was able to impress on students how important their revision is and to fuel the aim to succeed. Thank you and our thanks to Nicci.

The student and parents have gone away with some fantastic techniques to support them over the next few months!

I firstly would like to say thank you for the smooth organisation of our session today, the student and parents have gone away with some fantastic techniques to support them over the next few months! I would also like to say just how fantastic James was, he delivered with passion and enthusiasm and kept our students and parents fully engaged! James talked about the videos that are available at a cost, is there a subscription for schools as I would really like to use them in tutor time to support today’s session!

Martin’s delivery was excellent and we hope to be looking at possible follow on sessions in 2020

Hi Corin Just to let you know that the sessions delivered by Martin over the last couple of days were great!! Our year 11 pupils gained so much in terms of reflecting upon their own goals and the differences that they can make within themselves, in order to achieve their individual personal best. Martin's delivery was excellent and we hope to be looking at possible follow on sessions in 2020. many thanks Richard

160 Yr11 once again came out of the ‘Exams MADE Easy’ sessions buzzing about new revision techniques!

Hi Corin 160 Yr11 once again came out of the 'Exams MADE Easy' sessions buzzing about new revision techniques! 88% said they would put the techniques in to practice for the November exams. They thought James was really motivational and encouraging about their potential. Excellent!

My headteacher was so impressed with Sander, that he has already told me to organise some sessions with Year 11 as soon as I possibly can

Today has been a great success. The students came out glowing after their Exams Made Easy and Lighthouse workshops. Fabulous presentation which captivated many minds. My headteacher was so impressed with Sander, that he has already told me to organise some sessions with Year 11 as soon as I possibly can after half term. The other workshops had great impact, with kids extremely impressed with the SACU session which gives them tailor made options and pathways for their own futures. One of our more reluctant learners, asked Peter if he could print his results off to take home and show his mum, just proving the impact this session had on our students.
