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

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!

We had a fabulous week with the MADE team

We had a fabulous week with the MADE team at St John Fisher Catholic High School in Wigan as part of our year 11 study skills week. The pupils enjoyed finding the fun side of revision and were able to use this time to effectively implement and complete their own revision practice. The humour and games incorporated into the training made revision easy and fun. On the final day, Rob delivered a fun and inspiring staff inset using useful practical techniques that staff can use to interact with the pupils and ensure the enthusiasm of the revision can be incorporated into the classroom environment. Thanks again to the team, their enthusiasm knows no bounds.

Sander’s session resulted in everyone leaving the room feeling ten feet tall

Recently our HE institution recruited Student Ambassadors for the first time therefore I wanted them to have a unique and informative training programme that would not only equip them with the basic tools they need to be successful in their role but an opportunity to understand why we chose them. Sander’s session resulted in everyone leaving the room feeling ten feet tall, including myself and it’s actually very difficult to put into words how he did this! But the results speak volumes with regards to how everybody felt afterwards. He is an eloquent and sophisticated communicator and makes everything seem achievable. He motivated the room, boosted everyone’s confidence and equipped our Student Ambassadors with the tools they need to deliver exceptional presentations and engage with our students effectively. Thank you Sander for helping us show our Student Ambassadors how brilliant they are and encouraging them to believe in themselves.

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. -

The boys took a real shine to him

It was fabulous. Rob really engaged the boys from the outset not only with the materials that he used but also with his own energetic style and delivery (he reminded me of me, which is a compliment in itself). The fact that the class is made up of 26 boys, some of whom are the most challenging in the school, meant that the day could have been a real challenge for some teachers. However, Rob’s professionalism, energy, drive and motivation absolutely shone through. The boys took a real shine to him and have asked if they can work with him again-a sign that he made a real impression on them. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Rob, and Lucy from Staffs Uni for giving us this opportunity to work with your company. Thanks again, Dave and the boys.
