This was the first time we had done the Mastering Motivation course with our year 10 cohort. We felt it was well suited to them at this point in time. We have gained some valuable insights into how to motivate some students based on their completed info sheets. Tutors have fund this useful. Shenaz blended the content well with some more interactive activities in order to maintain engagement. Shenaz knows us and the school well and always tailors her presentation to the nature of the students on the day. The parents meeting in the evening was well pitched and we have had some very appreciative feedback. Excellent as ever.

Appropriate mixture of revision strategies plus endorsement of learning behaviours and student welfare. Can be pitched to meet the type of students and their responses. Shenaz very quickly establishes positive relationships, engages students and puts them at ease. Shenaz uses what she has learned about our school to make her presentation match our style, values and students. Staff respond well and are included in the sessions memorable for students.

Shenaz is engaging, has a good understanding of our students and pitches the content and pace well. We like that the course touches on a wide range of aspects for our students – eg revision skills, but more holistic things such as their welfare and how to prepare psychologically for the exams. Shenaz is now a popular figure within school with both students and teachers. Such a positive figure with students.

Absolutely brilliant! Students have learned a lot and will hopefully start now to put all the strategies into use. Shenaz is fantastic - she had a long day yesterday and was still captivating our small band of parents at 6.30 last night. She is such as asset to your organization.

Thoroughly enjoyed by all students. They saw it as enjoyable, but very relevent Steve the presenter was excellent in both delivery and energy! Resource sheet used by students was great – they did just about the right amount of written work to back up what was being said. Set the scene well for the year for both groups of students. Provided students with some excellent tools for revision/ independent learning. Students were WOW’d by how much they could remember – proof that it worked!

Unfortunately I didn’t get to attend the course but feedback from colleagues was all very positive – they thought Shenaz was brilliant and she had as much impact on them as she did on the kids. They thought her behavior management was outstanding! Excellent from start to finish – not just Shenaz (who impressed everyone) but the whole origination was efficient and like clockwork. I’ve been really impressed.

The children and staff thoroughly enjoyed both the Creative Approaches to Learning and the Mindwise workshops. We were particularly pleased with how popular Natalie’s twilight session for parents was. Staff have already started practising using some of the learning techniques to support their classes. Great! Natalie was so full of positivity and energy right the way through every single session that the children, staff and parents couldn’t help but learn. Thank you very much.

A powerful and dynamic lead from Shenaz was key to success of the day; it really brought home the need to revise but actually made it clear what revision actually is. Students were motivated by the presentation.

As last year – students enjoyed the course and nearly all were positive about their two hour session. The session delivered to staff was great – I think they would have been happy for a longer session – our decision to keep it to 45 minutes.
