Message from Sander de Groot, Director at MADE Training

In light of the ongoing situation resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, we would like to reassure you that the team at MADE Training are taking all the appropriate measures to protect and support the well-being of our staff and their families - but also to supporting our valued clients. With the government announcing that schools will close from Friday 20th March for an undetermined period, all of our live workshop delivery has been postponed until the situation improves. The health of our families and communities is paramount at this time. Our team will be working from home over the forthcoming weeks, with a focus on development projects and assisting schools with managing the transition from classroom learning to remote learning. MADE has served the education sector for 10 years and we are dedicated to continuing that support during this challenging time. I wish you all the best in navigating this difficult period.

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.

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.

The student and parents have gone away with some fantastic techniques to support them over the next few months!

I firstly would like to say thank you for the smooth organisation of our session today, the student and parents have gone away with some fantastic techniques to support them over the next few months! I would also like to say just how fantastic James was, he delivered with passion and enthusiasm and kept our students and parents fully engaged! James talked about the videos that are available at a cost, is there a subscription for schools as I would really like to use them in tutor time to support today’s session!

The day was absolutely brilliant.

The day was absolutely brilliant. The programme was perfect with lots of good interaction and good content which kept the students focused and engaged. The delivery by James was also spot on and at an excellent pace. I spoke to some of the students who all said they enjoyed it and it was beneficial to them.

I couldn’t have wanted anymore for the school and would be happy to book again

Hi Corin, Thank you for your email, we had a great two days in the school and the students really responded to the sessions. Martin was absolutely great, I sat in on a few of his sessions and the students were engaged and contributing well. I couldn’t have wanted anymore for the school and would be happy to book again.
