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.

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!

The day was absolutely brilliant.

The day was absolutely brilliant. The programme was perfect with lots of good interaction and good content which kept the students focused and engaged. The delivery by James was also spot on and at an excellent pace. I spoke to some of the students who all said they enjoyed it and it was beneficial to them.

Parents walked away with some great strategies to help support their child

The session was really informative and interesting. The parents found it really useful and it was a great opportunity for them to realise that the challenges they face parenting their teen are common and that they are not alone! Parents walked away with some great strategies to help support their child. A fantastic way to end a brilliant conference!

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)!

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.
