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.

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.

Some said it was the best session they had ever had at Walton

Thank you for the session you delivered for Year 13s on Friday at Walton. The students were very enthusiastic about the whole session. They all found it really useful and some have already started to use the techniques recommended. They thought Joe was really enthusiastic and had some very good exam techniques. Some said it was the best session they had ever had at Walton! Praise indeed – as we know students can be the harshest critics! The staff who observed Joe were very complimentary about the very high quality of the sessions, Joe’s professionalism and the highly engaging delivery. I would thoroughly recommend Joe to other schools and look forward to being able to work with him again at Walton. With best wishes

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

Very experienced and engaging trainers who responded brilliantly to the needs of the students

The sessions were packed full of practical ideas that we can now build on as a school. Very experienced and engaging trainers who responded brilliantly to the needs of the students. They worked brilliantly as a double act and commanded the attention of the room of 150 students well. The initial feedback from students is overwhelmingly positive. The session for parents and carers was also very helpful and some great discussion was had as to the best working environment for children at home and especially around the hot topic of electronic devices. Many thanks for everything.

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.
