Positive Teacher Comments

Don't let your past define who you are, instead let it be a part of who you will become.

Teachers and Tutors just like you wanted the very best for their students. That is why they came to us and continue to use us time and time again. You can read their testimonials here.


Our College participated in both Pump Up the Volume and The Genesis eXperience two weeks ago and the effect has been fantastic. A small group of very un-motivated Year 11 boys took a dramatic turn for the better and have knuckled down and finished their GCSE coursework in the nick of time. This has lead to them raising their predicted grades by at least a grade. Something that three weeks ago seemed too much too hope for. The Genesis group are also still thinking positively and smiling two weeks after the event and are confident about the coming exams. "What a difference a day makes!"

The Genesis eXperience enables our students to transcend from young people into confident and enthusiastic learners. Students leave the sessions feeling positive and full of self belief with a new found respect for each other and for life”.

I would recommend The Genesis eXperience to any school or college looking for an innovative way of inspiring young people and would also like to add that staff attending these sessions have benefited just as much as some of the students.

Maura Rayner, Aimhigher Coordinator


On the 24th of April 2009 twenty five year 11 pupils enjoyed a full day with Cutting Edge. It is hard enough keeping the attention of these particular pupils for one hour never mind a whole day, but Tom managed it admirably.

The feedback from the pupils at the end was both amazing and very genuine, Maura said 'it was fabulous!' Rory said 'it was a great confidence booster'. We only wish we had heard of The Genesis eXperience sooner for year 11. On behalf of all the kids that went through the course, thank you. We will see you again!

Thank you so much for coming into Thornaby Community School to work with the year 9 and 10 aimhigher cohort you managed to engage them and really get them thinking!

The Genesis eXperience was the best session we have had in school for a long time and the student feedback was fab! with students saying things like "it taught me to be more confident about who i am" "it made me want to work harder and believe in myself".

Jennifer Draper, Aimhigher Coordinator


The Genesis eXperience

20 year 9 girls took part in the day with Cutting Edge Motivation. Some were already confident but lacking direction and others just had no confidence at all. All benefitted from the day and really enjoyed it too. The girls have been pestering me ever since about when the next one will be!

The best course I have ever attended

E Hodgson, Wolsingham School


How to Engage, Motivate and Help Young People Realise Their Full Potential and The Genesis eXperience
I would just like to say thank you for both the day you did in school for our students and the day of training I did with you.

I really feel that the activities you provide boost confidence, raise self-esteem, and motivate young people who fall into the category of 'disengaged'.

Since attending the training, I have followed your principles in the classroom and seen the difference it makes.

Thank you so much for presenting The Genesis eXperience to our further education academic staff. Staff feedback after the event was entirely positive, and the whole team felt it was a day well spent.

The Genesis eXperience
A rewarding and thought provoking experience for our pupils. The environment created during the session was such that even our more reticent pupils felt comfortable enough to open up and enter into the discussions.

Enjoyed it very much. Great delivery.
K.M. St Hild's School


Excellent - best staff development programme ever.


The most enjoyable, interesting, thought-provoking training day that I have attended in a long time.


Will help with my teaching dyslexic students who often lack confidence but who are open to different ideas. This can seriously change your life - for the better. I found the session very thought-provoking and uplifting and intend to read further.


Made me more determined to succeed and be aware of what I can achieve.


Your activities have had a significant positive effect (on our students)


Helped me to be more positive about myself and better able to motivate students, particularly those of low self-esteem.


There is so much scope within each and every one of us and this session reminded me that I knew this but had forgotten!


A stimulating programme which provokes thought and debate. Very visual and evocative.


A very worthwhile two days highlighting the importance of being creative with young people who lack confidence and motivation.


It was interesting and the marriage of technology, philosophy and psychology was innovative.


If you want something that will make you think and are open to new ideas then try this.


A good tool which used in the right hands could change a young person's perception and direction in life. Could be a life-saver!


It was a really enjoyable, relaxed programme, that made you think about yourself and attitude to others. It was delivered in a non-threatening manner.


It has made me feel more positive about furthering myself.


Your programme will help me with my teaching strategies and personal motivation.


Your drive and enthusiasm was contagious! I feel certain that all the delegates present went away from the meeting feeling very positive.


It took the participants two weeks to come back down to earth.
