A Virtual Event for Teachers on Wednesday 9th February 2022 at 4.30pm - 5.30pm!
Who is this webinar for?
You are a teacher who wants to know what principals are looking for from teachers.
You are a teacher who would like a better understanding of how to stand out in a job interview or in a school.
You are a teacher who would like to hear tips from a principal about getting your teaching career off to the best possible start.
This webinar would mainly suit newer teachers to the profession as we will be chatting about the NQT year, Droichead, planning requirements amongst other key topics.
By the end of this webinar, you will:
- Know what principals are looking for, instead of worrying about what it is they want.
- Have clear, practical guidance on how to put your best foot forward in interview, instead of panicking about what to say.
- Feel empowered to take the next step in your journey to becoming a teacher, instead of feeling unsure of what to do next.
Why have you created this webinar?
We created this webinar because we want to support you in your first steps in the teaching profession. Nadine and Niamh have spoken together at various Rahoo events. At our previous iteration of this webinar in 2021, 100% off attendees said it was “very good” or “excellent”. Feedback includes:
- “I found this course to be very beneficial. Both Niamh and Nadine were very knowledgeable and informative”.
- “It was very thorough and went through everything in a simple, clear manner”.
- “I really enjoyed that both Niamh and Nadine were on the webinar, they bounced off each other very well and it was a more interesting format”.
- “The Q/A was a comfortable way to ask questions (anonymously). The fact that it is being recorded is also helpful”.
We are passionate about professional development for teachers and have worked with over 8,000 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.

This is always a hot topic for teachers and so important to get it right.
Here are some mistakes that teachers have shared with us when they did our EPV Summer Course on Classroom Management with Niamh Byrne, Irish Primary Teacher.
We have dipped in and out of the CPD course to learn what to do instead!
Why do we remember the words of lyrics we haven’t heard in years? Why do some experiences stick in our heads more than others? Something made them memorable!
Make your lessons stick by trying to make some aspect of it different. This could be as simple as playing music (we have played classical music when students were working independently in the past) or hooking them into the lesson with mystery tasks or controversial questions that spark debate.
When planning ask yourself: What can I do to make this lesson memorable?
Trying to keep calm when things are not going well in the classroom can be such a struggle. It is overwhelming to try and support students with their emotions and behaviours – as well as our own.
Susan Gavin, course author of EPV Summer Course “Supporting Students with Challenging Behaviour” has put a comprehensive course together to help us pre-empt issues and creating systems and ways of working that stop things escalating negatively.

Okay so we’ve all been there – a job post comes up on your screen that you hadn’t seen before and the deadline is that day!
You quickly rush the application to get it in before 3pm and pray to Beyonce (she’s like God, right?) that it’s acceptable!
