They understand the needs of our schools

We have worked with MADE since 2017. They are one of our most popular external providers as they understand the needs of our schools and their trainers consistently get excellent feedback.

Knowledgeable and professional trainers and good quality resources for learners

MADE Training are highly organised; communication and booking workshops is always straightforward.

MADE have become a firm favourite with our outreach officers and more importantly our schools!

MADE have become a firm favourite with our outreach officers and more importantly our schools! They provide a super engaging way to help inspire and prepare students for their studies with students consistently commenting they are motivated to learn after a session with them. They also work with parents and teachers which is a real plus for us. The feedback from schools has been fantastic and we have since decided to include MADE as part of our core offer as a result of their brilliant work. They make everything super easy with timely and efficient planning and organising of activity, they go way and above on delivery and provide thorough evaluation that is promptly sent to us after any activity. I highly recommend them!

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.

Sander’s session resulted in everyone leaving the room feeling ten feet tall

Recently our HE institution recruited Student Ambassadors for the first time therefore I wanted them to have a unique and informative training programme that would not only equip them with the basic tools they need to be successful in their role but an opportunity to understand why we chose them. Sander’s session resulted in everyone leaving the room feeling ten feet tall, including myself and it’s actually very difficult to put into words how he did this! But the results speak volumes with regards to how everybody felt afterwards. He is an eloquent and sophisticated communicator and makes everything seem achievable. He motivated the room, boosted everyone’s confidence and equipped our Student Ambassadors with the tools they need to deliver exceptional presentations and engage with our students effectively. Thank you Sander for helping us show our Student Ambassadors how brilliant they are and encouraging them to believe in themselves.

Some saying it’s the best talk they’ve ever had

We had James deliver the ‘goals and aspirations’ workshop today at Callywith College. It was pitched so perfectly it’s like he got into my brain or something. It was exactly what we were after. Today's theme at college was all about aiming high and believing in yourself and his talk fitted this perfectly. We’ve had a whole week of events and James was by far the best bit of the week. Staff and students have said it’s the best talk they’ve been to all year with some saying it’s the best talk they’ve ever had. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The workshop was delivered brilliantly

The workshop was delivered brilliantly by Sander, he had students (and staff) fully engaged and everyone walked away from the event in a positive mood having learned something new to help them in their studies (or their work). The feedback has been so very positive and we are all looking forward to the next one on the 20th June.

Motivational and aspirational!

James did a great job today, it really focused students thinking and helped them to plan ahead - setting targets and taking responsibility for their own learning. Motivational and aspirational!

How to become 21st century learners

12th February 2018 - Once again a different group of Year 11 pupils attended a MADE revision workshop held at Lawn Manor Academy from 9.45am till 2pm. The training was inspirational for pupils! The techniques used were vital for our pupils to understand how to become 21st century learners. Some of the comments included: “Our pupils thought the workshop was really fun! The facilitator provided us with really useful exam preparation strategies to create cue cards, number sequences and memory palace was. We learnt a variety of revision techniques”. “I was happy as I was interested in what I learnt today” . Impressive as this is the first day of the holidays! Thank you to MADE who ran the training and to Study Higher who helped organise and fund the event. Our pupils really appreciated it and had lots of fun! 111 pupils in total attended this workshop either in Oct or February. We are grateful for Study Higher who paid for these events and pizza very much appreciated!
