Why have you created this course?
74% of Irish teachers are not confident with formative assessment (Rahoo survey, 2020). We have facilitated workshops on Assessment for Learning in schools and education centres across Ireland since 2017. Feedback has been extremely positive. We created this online course because we want to support you in enhancing teaching and learning by using formative assessment methods – from the comfort of your own home!
We are passionate about professional development for teachers and have worked with over 11,000 teachers since 2017. As a teacher, you are the most important person in the classroom – you make the greatest impact on the students in front of you.
“I have found Rahoo short courses to be well delivered and interesting. I have already told colleagues about you and I look forward to enrolling again in the near future. It is nice when you make the effort to engage with a CPD course and find that it ” does what it says on the tin”!
