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.

I couldn’t have wanted anymore for the school and would be happy to book again

Hi Corin, Thank you for your email, we had a great two days in the school and the students really responded to the sessions. Martin was absolutely great, I sat in on a few of his sessions and the students were engaged and contributing well. I couldn’t have wanted anymore for the school and would be happy to book again.

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!

Delivery was engaging, lively and demonstrated real commitment to student experience

My feedback would be that it was a great session, full of useful strategies for learning that can be used in a range of situations, from a school/ college environment, to the workplace or as part of your own personal development. Delivery was engaging, lively and demonstrated real commitment to student experience.

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.

The workshops were brilliant as was Danny’s presentation

Hi Corin The workshops were brilliant as was Danny's presentation. Our students and the staff in the workshops were very impressed not only by the content but the delivery. Stunning. We had a great deal of positive feedback from the parents this evening - orally. If you have information from your feedback that you could let us have we would be really appreciative. Please could you pass my thanks to Danny as I missed him leave this evening.

A number of our students stopped Danny in the corridor afterwards to thank him

We had Danny in yesterday and the sessions went really well. Year 9 found 'The Lighthouse' sessions useful, with many setting themselves really aspirational targets for their futures and Year 11 got a lot of useful tips for supporting their revision from Exams Made Easy. A number of our students stopped Danny in the corridor afterwards to thank him for the session. We also had a number of parents attend the workshop in the evening. They fed back that the session was very useful and they liked having the opportunity to ask questions and share some of their concerns. I thought the workshop was excellent and the resources useful and easy to use.

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)!
