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.

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.

James was outstanding – really engaging and enthusiastic.

Thank you for organising everything so quickly for us. Our students found the Rapid Revision Power Hour so useful! They were really engaged and went away armed with a number of different revision techniques to try – some even were trying some out at lunchtime when I saw them! James was outstanding – really engaging and enthusiastic. A really useful day – Thanks again.

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 material was very useful and I know that many of our Y11s intends to use the techniques they were shown

Nicci ran excellent sessions with our Y11 students. She engaged the students from the start and her delivery of Pi to 36 numbers from memory was astounding! The material was very useful and I know that many of our Y11s intends to use the techniques they were shown. I also thought it was great that someone other than a teacher was able to impress on students how important their revision is and to fuel the aim to succeed. Thank you and our thanks to Nicci.

Martin’s delivery was excellent and we hope to be looking at possible follow on sessions in 2020

Hi Corin Just to let you know that the sessions delivered by Martin over the last couple of days were great!! Our year 11 pupils gained so much in terms of reflecting upon their own goals and the differences that they can make within themselves, in order to achieve their individual personal best. Martin's delivery was excellent and we hope to be looking at possible follow on sessions in 2020. many thanks Richard

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.

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.

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.
