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.

Rob did your company proud

Rob was brilliant! Our pupil's found him engaging, I saw all his sessions and they were great. The session in the afternoon, the pupil's felt really helped them. The parents session in the evening again was a very professional session and really gave the parents the help they need in preparation for their child's examinations. Rob did your company proud.

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.

Students were excited to find out that Rob was coming back

I was in the sessions yesterday and really enjoyed them too. Students were excited to find out that Rob was coming back to do another workshop with them as they loved the Aspirations workshop on Futures Friday. They said his personality is great and the sessions were informative and fun. From my point of view as a teacher, I realised that we don't always spend enough time explaining how to use the revision techniques and often make assumptions i.e that students know what to highlight when highlighting key points in texts. I also think that we as teachers need to spend more time explaining how/why these methods work so that students buy into them and are willing to give them a try. Rob reads the students really well, he praises students who need to engage in the session better and learns and uses their names really quickly. He uses humour and speaks to as many of the students as he can during the sessions. I think they all feel like they know him now. Some comments from my year 11 form: "I think the sessions were really helpful. I learned new techniques for revision that I haven't thought of before." "Rob's sessions were enjoyable and definitely not boring. He brought personality and humour to them." "He really interacted with the group instead of just talking"

The content of the workshop was excellent

Joe was excellent, really engaging and interactive and he worked well with all the students. The content of the workshop was excellent, it included really practical ways of revising and remembering information and key facts. A number of the students have said how useful they found the workshop and they feel it will really help with their revision.

The sessions were excellent due to his calm manner and interaction

The Rapid Revision sessions have received some great feedback especially from our year 11 boys who have spoken with their teachers about the different techniques Joe showed them and how they feel more positive as they revise for their mocks later this month. Joe’s delivery of the sessions were excellent due to his calm manner and interaction with the students. He explained the different techniques clearly and in an engaging way. The setting for the workshops wasn’t ideal as we were a little cramped to say the least however this did not detract from the message that Joe was getting across. I would certainly look to doing the sessions again in the future and also the ones where parents can be involved. A great success!

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.

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.

If only you could reach every school in the land!

What was so inspiring about Sander's approach to learning, was that he was challenging the 'learned helplessness' so many students hold in this run up to exams. Especially, if they believe their efforts will have little effect on the level they find themselves at now - having come to the end of 11 years in education! However, Sander turned that all on its head today by completely changing this mindset! By simply assuring them that by the end of the session they WILL memorise a vast set of information in a short amount of time, he started to sew the first seeds of a new found confidence in their own ability. He backed that up with several memory strategies and POW! the entire room was alive throwing the information back at him. Varying the tone and sound of his delivery and more importantly nurturing that new found confidence with positivity, encouragement, value and fun, he had every student engaged. By the end of the session he had proved and had them believe, that if they can learn this new way to focus, not only these forthcoming exams but all future learning is now well within their reach! If only you could reach every school in the land! So impressed!
