Danny’s pace, content and humour had all the students thoroughly engaged and involved

Danny presented Fantastically to our students during the Exams MADE Easy session that we hosted at UTC Plymouth. Danny's pace, content and humour had all the students thoroughly engaged and involved. The interactive workbook was a great structure for the session which the students found really useful. All students commented on how they had picked up at least 1 new revision strategy to implement in this years exam season.

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.

Many came away feeling confident that they now had the tools to make ‘Exams Easy’

Once again we were delighted with the high quality workshops delivered by Made Training. The resources were engaging and the presentation had the right balance of theory and practice. Students loved the range of activities and the interactive nature of the sessions - many came away feeling confident that they now had the tools to make 'Exams Easy'. Rob was superb throughout and I would highly recommend.

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 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!

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.

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.
