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.

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!

Nicci was very warm, welcoming and enthusiastic about the content she delivered

Nicci was very warm, welcoming and enthusiastic about the content she delivered during the MADE training for some of our Year 9 and 10 students on working through and setting their Goals and Aspirations. She welcomed questions and had prizes for everyone that volunteered answers which kept students engaged throughout. It was a pleasure to see her speak to our students as she had examples from her life and others to show students the end results of putting what she was teaching them into practice. I've since passed on some of the booklets to my colleagues as I genuinely believe the content is very suitable for everyone including teachers! And I hope to use them myself as soon as possible. -

So many staff have said how fantastic the training was!

That feedback report is great. I had a great day too and so many staff have said how fantastic the training was! Many have already been to see me to tell me how they have been implementing some of the ideas Joe gave them. There was a real buzz among students/parents too on the day. Thank you

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!

Young people starting to think positively about their future

James has been great. I have been able to see the young people starting to think positively about their future and get excited about working hard to reach their goals. James' delivery is inspiring and engaging, he is clearly passionate about the message of the session. He has held the kids attention throughout and enabled them to reflect on their attitudes. The teachers have been telling me that they would like more sessions by MADE in the school so I’m sure I will be getting in touch again soon! Thanks for your help at this event.

Focus on big decisions about GCSE options and further in their future

We were pleased to welcome MADE back for a second visit delivering the Goals & Aspirations workshop to Year 9, and it did not disappoint. Joe has a lively and enthusing delivery that really helped students focus on big decisions about GCSE options and further in their future. It gave them more confidence in how to set goals and then pathways to achieve them. It’s great to have such an engaging and interactive experience (we really liked the prizes!) and great to hear how many of our students felt inspired. We already have another workshop booked and hope to be able to work with Joe and MADE again beyond that. Thank you!
