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.

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)!

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.

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"
