High impact, tailored specifically to our needs, a bespoke service – something I haven’t experienced form other service providers. The sessions were well catered for the different levels of learners, really liked how the techniques were then put into practice for subjects the learners are studying. Shenaz was vibrant and positive and enthusiastic, a large number of learners felt the event was valuable.
Excellent. All aspects of the course were beneficial and the feedback from all participants was excellent. Shenaz was amazing at motivating and engaging the students. A very worthwhile experience for the students and for the teachers who attended the sessions.
The feedback for the day has been overwhelmingly positive – from parents, staff and pupils. Following the course, Year 11 pupils have already drafted a first timetable this morning so are on track to continue with the enthusiasm and ideas shared by Shenaz during the day. We have seen that the ‘Positively MAD’ days have a noticeable effect on pupils. It plays an important part in our school calendar and provision for pupils and helps to inspire and motivate students as well as give them some practical tools that can be used in class and at home immediately.
Thanks for a great day Really appreciate you being so willing to help us out with such little notice Steve really fab entertaining 137 year 11 pupils for 3 hours!
The course was particularly appropriate for our GCSE and A level exam pupils. The focus on key revision techniques really was a revelation to many of our students, particularly those of middle to low ability and aspiration. Helping make learning easier is the key to motivating these pupils and your course was able to do that superbly well. Many of the practical tips outlined on the day will be incorporated into our revision programmes and also shared with parents Our day was divided into two to cater for the two halves of a large year group. Each cohort attended a two hour workshop. The varied activities kept all pupils, even the most disaffected, on task and interested throughout. All pupils could see the relevance and effectiveness of the activities being described.
Very engaging for all pupils. Course delivery was set to the ability of the pupils with high levels of expectation regarding Motivation and pupil behaviour. Many positive comments were made by pupils who in some cases were reluctant to take part at first but then realised the whole idea is that they have to have aspirations and they have to work and go after their aspiration to achieve. A very worthwhile event and suitable for the entire cohort
The course was excellent. Pupils were buzzing with ideas and energy by the end of the session. We hope that we can maintain this motivation until the exams and beyond. The course was tailored to our needs and that is much appreciated
The delivery was excellent and the students were highly engaged and motivated. The parents and Teacher sessions were equally well received. The material was exactly what we had asked for and the comments from the students support this. Student comments were: Overall, I found the sessions to be rather informative and useful.- I would like to thank the school for asking Shanaz to come in to Ysgol Gyfun Emlyn, thus providing an excellent opportunity to further develop our revision techniques..- Amazeballs 8/8 gr8 – George - Loved the sesh xxx - Inspiring and motivational. - Learnt and new skills Was brill- Learnt a lot - Motivational and fun - Very Helpful - Inspired me to revise - Inspiring, motivational, amazing, helpful, eye opening, scary, funny - Funny and good fun – very helpful - Starting to revise ASAP - They need to be here for longer - It was very helpful and I will be using most of the techniques that were mentioned - It was helpful and I enjoyed and I will use the techniques - I think the students have pretty much nailed it.
Excellent once again, pupils thoroughly enjoyed it, well delivered and well suited to the needs / age range it was delivered to. Very useful session for both year groups and Jay once again kept them motivated and engaged.
Excellent presentation as per usual! The pupils enjoyed thoroughly and will hopefully be able to utilize the skills they used during the upcoming mock exams. The parent session was also very informative. Received great written and verbal feedback from pupils and parents.
The course was well received by the students due in large part to Sophie’s lively and enthusiastic presentation. All elements were useful and relevant and there was good pace to the day’s activities. I am confident that students will make use of the various strategies introduced during their time in the sixth form. Many thanks for the ease of booking the event and for delivering the course itself.
The courses were really beneficial to our learners. The learners really enjoyed the approach of splitting the work up into chunks and being active in between, this is an approach we will use again! The information given to learners was appropriate for our learners. Staff who participated in the activities said they found the workshops useful. Both Sophie and Rachel were fantastic, extremely professional and caring towards our learners. Their delivery was enthusiastic and interesting, we’d love to have them back. ?
Exam Busting once again went down superbly with the majority of our students, providing them with some of the skills they will need as they prepare for their examinations. Steve was excellent in his delivery and we would welcome him back next year with open arms – he was superb. His enthusiasm and excellent delivery rubbed off on the pupils. By tying the day in with the pupils receiving their examination timetables I felt that the day was the perfect kick start in to the tough weeks and months ahead. Would not hesitate to book again.
Excellent course, highly suitable for our learners. All learners were focused and engaged in the activities, they remembered things they were taught the next day! Specialist staff who attended enjoyed the activities and felt they could re-use the information provided and techniques. A fantastic, high energy day, Rachel was amazing! I would thoroughly recommend to any school, can’t wait for your return next week for the Study Skills and Mastering Motivation courses!
I was grateful for the talk this morning I would like to thank Steve for making me think about the future. We all learnt something today because you have a very unique way of teaching. You made us laugh and think at the same time I would like you to come back and see us again and show us more thanks you again #steveiscool
Excellent again this year. Kids very receptive. Already had my Yr 11 using mindmaps in their revision! Going to reinforce reviewing now!
As usual the presentations from Jay were very useful for our students and we feel this is a positive experience for them and it keeps them engaged.
Jay’s enthusiasm, knowledge of the strategies, techniques and tips was excellent and was exactly what we were looking for at this time in Year 11 for our students and parents. It’s testament to Jay and the workshop as to how many pupils had told their parents about how much they enjoyed it and how useful they found it that some students were calling and texting their parents during the school day to say ‘Mum/Dad you need to come to the Parent’s workshop this evening!’ The strategies were relevant, easy to use, engaging and delivered in a way which will facilitate the students use of them as well. It was great to be given some resources by Jay in order to support the pupils through the revision process as the year goes on as well. I will look to rebook this event for next years, Year 11 at a similar time.
An engaging course containing very useful guidance and advice on effective studying. Staff who attended the sessions with students found its content very interesting and engaging. The course was delivered in a friendly, clear, respectful and purposeful manner. The day ran very smoothly, and all students responded positively to Sophie’s presentations; appreciating that the session was worthwhile. We appreciate Sophie’s willingness to accommodate our needs in terms of time constraints and numbers.
Brilliant. The materials were pitched at exactly the right level for our pupils – they were kept amused and challenged throughout. Pupils enjoyed the session enormously and many have been to tell me today how amazing it was
Fantastic course! All students enjoyed themselves and got a lot from the day. Steve was a total professional and excellent to work with. Diolch!
It was a fantastic day - thanks Jay and the team.
The course was brilliant with the pupils taking a lot from the day. Jay was excellent the pupils took to his style of presentation very quickly. There has been a real buzz in the school too. I am confident this will mean a more positive attitude towards their revision. Timing was excellent. 100% attention from the pupils at all times. Parents took something from the afterschool session too.
Just want to say a massive thank you for the sessions Karim ran at our school yesterday.Staff, pupils and parents were very impressed with the content and delivery of the sessions.Some of our pupils are difficult to engage but Karim engaged and motivated them.I really believe it will make a difference. I will definitely be asking you to visit our school again when I get my new year group! Many thanks
The course was a great success , the students enjoyed the workshops provided and many of them could see how they could benefit from following some of the revision techniques outlined by Mark Kennedy . The interactive nature of the course also helped to ensure the students were concentrating throughout the two hours. A great day
Jay came out to my school today and can I say that he was brilliant, such an inspiration and he has encouraged me to do more revision for my exams in the summer, thank you for doing what you do
Jay ran the session really well, and was motivational. Parents have already requested another session with themselves and pupils together/very well received.
The children and parents who participated in the day enjoyed it. The presenter was excellent and engaging too
I arranged for PM to come to Gower College but unfortunately I was off sick when the event took place. Staff have told me they were very impressed with the event and once some get back to me with emailed comments I'll fill in the sheet and return it to you. I am definitely interested in booking with you again.
