Great value for money in comparison to what else is out there

We thought the day was excellent and great value for money in comparison to what else is out there. Rob was a fantastic trainer who engaged with the students and, even though he had only just met them, seamlessly understood their needs and engaged with them effortlessly. The materials and ideas presented to the students were well packaged and will prove highly useful for the year groups' revision strategies. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Joe’s delivery was excellent

It was an excellent day, the variety of different workshops on offer engaged all of our Year 11 pupils. Joe's delivery was excellent he made each of the different workshops, fun, engaging and informative ensuring all pupils interacted and came away from the sessions having learnt new skills. We would definitely look to have MADE training back in to deliver to our pupils in the future

I really can’t praise him highly enough.

The feedback was excellent from the students and especially the parents. James was an absolute star throughout the day, even dealing with the technical conundrum when the power went! I hope he got home OK!? The students today have been discussing it in PD and it has proved a valuable starting point in getting them thinking forward and to their exams and one we can keep referencing. I really can't praise him highly enough. I've copied an email form a parent below so you can get a sample of feedback but there was a lot of verbal praise too last night.

James pushed them during the session to overcome barriers to achieve their very best

Wow! The sessions run on Friday by James were fantastic and the feedback from students and staff has been so positive. Having spoken to a few students, they said that they felt really positive about their future, to follow their dreams and not to give up. They said James pushed them during the session to overcome barriers to achieve their very best. The teachers that were fortunate to be in the sessions spoke very highly of James. We are so pleased that James enjoyed inspiring our students and the fact that he spoke so highly of our students and school has meant a lot to us all. Please pass on my thanks to James, and we look forward to welcoming him back again in due course.

The teachers with the group really enjoyed it and were furiously taking notes!

Joe delivered an excellent session - everyone enjoyed it and found it useful. The teachers with the group really enjoyed it and were furiously taking notes! It was a hard to engage group of lads and Joe was brilliant at keeping them focused on the session. The revision techniques he delivered were excellent and were aimed at the right level for the group. What Joe managed to get the group taking part in throughout the session was truly amazing and inspiring. The motivational aspect was great and very much needed for the group - something that we weren't quite aware of when we booked you but I feel that the questions that Joe was asking the group really got through to some of them. Please pass on our thanks to Joe - it was a difficult, though lovely, group to work with and he did amazingly. Looking forward to working with you again in the future.

I honestly have to say this is the best one I’ve ever been involved with

Rob the trainer was incredible, he had the students eating out of his hand even before the session started. Bearing in mind this group had been in one room all week and beginning to lose the will. Rob’s mannerism and enthusiasm was so infectious and within minutes you could feel the atmosphere in the room change, and the students began to become engaged. The sessions were paced really well, and kept everyone focussed including two naughty staff (hehe) it was interactive, thought provoking and really inspirational, the students interacted not only with Rob, but were engaging and encouraging other students. I have worked in schools for a long time, and seen many outside agencies come into school to deliver their workshops. I honestly have to say this is the best one I’ve ever been involved with. I will certainly recommend this to my other colleagues (or maybe not and just keep the courses for my year group) ! Please pass onto Rob my sincere thanks and gratitude for really lifting me today I have left the workshop feeling energised and motivated, ready to face the next week. Thanks again

Some saying it’s the best talk they’ve ever had

We had James deliver the ‘goals and aspirations’ workshop today at Callywith College. It was pitched so perfectly it’s like he got into my brain or something. It was exactly what we were after. Today's theme at college was all about aiming high and believing in yourself and his talk fitted this perfectly. We’ve had a whole week of events and James was by far the best bit of the week. Staff and students have said it’s the best talk they’ve been to all year with some saying it’s the best talk they’ve ever had. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

It was wonderful to see so many engaged and inspired

I just wanted to express my sincere thanks for the wonderful experience the pupils at EPCHS had. It was wonderful to see so many engaged and inspired by the techniques. Joe was fantastic and had a great way with the students who at times can be quite passive... I look forward to working with the company again.

The workshop was delivered brilliantly

The workshop was delivered brilliantly by Sander, he had students (and staff) fully engaged and everyone walked away from the event in a positive mood having learned something new to help them in their studies (or their work). The feedback has been so very positive and we are all looking forward to the next one on the 20th June.
