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.

Their professional, friendly manner, flexibility and organisation have been superb

We have worked with MADE Training over the last year or so on a number of events for Years 9 – 13. Their professional, friendly manner, flexibility and organisation have been superb. All of the workshops have been delivered by engaging, professional and experienced trainers, who immediately capture the pupils’ and students’ attention. The workshops are focused, interesting, relevant and always pitched at just the right level. They have all had a positive impact on everyone who has attended, providing our pupils and students with vital skills and strategies to enhance their studies and raise their aspirations. The parents’ workshops have also been very well received, with parental feedback giving a strong impression that they leave the workshops with enhanced knowledge about revision strategies, tools to help their children, and with a feeling of empowerment. Thank you!

Rob did your company proud

Rob was brilliant! Our pupil's found him engaging, I saw all his sessions and they were great. The session in the afternoon, the pupil's felt really helped them. The parents session in the evening again was a very professional session and really gave the parents the help they need in preparation for their child's examinations. Rob did your company proud.

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"

The content of the workshop was excellent

Joe was excellent, really engaging and interactive and he worked well with all the students. The content of the workshop was excellent, it included really practical ways of revising and remembering information and key facts. A number of the students have said how useful they found the workshop and they feel it will really help with their revision.

The boys took a real shine to him

It was fabulous. Rob really engaged the boys from the outset not only with the materials that he used but also with his own energetic style and delivery (he reminded me of me, which is a compliment in itself). The fact that the class is made up of 26 boys, some of whom are the most challenging in the school, meant that the day could have been a real challenge for some teachers. However, Rob’s professionalism, energy, drive and motivation absolutely shone through. The boys took a real shine to him and have asked if they can work with him again-a sign that he made a real impression on them. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Rob, and Lucy from Staffs Uni for giving us this opportunity to work with your company. Thanks again, Dave and the boys.

Joe’s delivery was excellent

It was an excellent day, the variety of different workshops on offer engaged all of our Year 11 pupils. Joe's delivery was excellent he made each of the different workshops, fun, engaging and informative ensuring all pupils interacted and came away from the sessions having learnt new skills. We would definitely look to have MADE training back in to deliver to our pupils in the future

I really can’t praise him highly enough.

The feedback was excellent from the students and especially the parents. James was an absolute star throughout the day, even dealing with the technical conundrum when the power went! I hope he got home OK!? The students today have been discussing it in PD and it has proved a valuable starting point in getting them thinking forward and to their exams and one we can keep referencing. I really can't praise him highly enough. I've copied an email form a parent below so you can get a sample of feedback but there was a lot of verbal praise too last night.

Rob was brilliant and the delivery was excellent

The girls have really enjoyed the sessions; Rob was brilliant and the delivery was excellent. The verbal feedback I have had from the pupils has been very positive and they now have a lot more ideas about revision techniques which may work for them; it will be interesting to see the impact report from yourselves. All in all, a very positive start to Year 11! Many thanks for all your help with setting this up!
