Excellent course - so interesting and enjoyable but challenging so much that we have always been encouraged to do!

A very valuable day. I really benefitted from Chris using the same techniques/strategies himself that he was advocating. Lots to think about and share with colleagues. Thank you :)

Chris delivered ‘Making it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning’ to the Methodist Academies Schools Trust, Birmingham:

Chris has a of wealth of valuable knowledge and it was a pleasure to take part in his training.

Valuable take away opportunities and ideas to enhance learning.

I would highly recommend this training and other training by Chris to others.

The knowledge shared was and is very beneficial and purposeful.

I now understand the importance of embedding the learning rather than focusing on the task type. Memory is the residue of thought.

I found it really informative and I love the idea of practical takeaways.

It was very useful to understand why children forget and some strategies to help with this.

Explanation of long term/working memory and it’s application in the learner process was useful.

Like the short/sharp tips that can change practice within the classroom.

Great! Thank you!

Procedural, episodic, semantic planning with this in mind will be useful.

Chris is always thought provoking and provides really well thought out materials and practical examples.

Fabulous – you made a space for us at the last moment. Thank you!

Love the workbook – great to use for future to recap.

Latest research on how memory works.

Very informative - would love to attend more courses.


The materials and delivery of them were excellent.

Chris guided us through all the content with a great pace, excellent knowledge and the right balance between theory and practice.

Loved the puzzles.

Interleaved practise - interesting to find out that it’s not good to block as children learn more by doing it over a time.
