What is Rahoo's Course of the Month?
In a nutshell, every month we will showcase one of our online CPD courses for teachers – all are self-paced and can be done from the comfort of your own home!
And…. it will have a special offer for the month!
What is The Teacher Savings Plan about?
This course is for teachers who want to know how to get on the property ladder – FAST – and want to know how to achieve financial freedom!
Nobody enters the teaching profession to become a millionaire – we know that money is not necessarily the main reward with teaching. It can be a secure and pensionable job – but not one that provides financial freedom.
This course is designed to give you an insight into personal finance information – tailored specifically for teachers.
The course content will open your eyes to financial options and opportunities available to you.
How does it work?
This course has been divided into the following parts:
Introduction to Finances
Option A for Teachers
Option B for Teachers
Excel Spreadsheet Tutorials & Downloadable Editable Excel Savings Document for Teachers
What is included?
An editable Excel savings spreadsheet.
This has been pre-populated and calculated with the teacher pay scale as of November 2020.
This downloadable document will forecast your financial options for you, depending on your point on the salary scale and other personal details.
All the hard work has been done for you – you just need to tailor it to your personal situation!
What do teachers who have done the course say about it?
“Very concise and clear”.
” I liked the clear examples of an actual teacher’s salary starting point. good advice and ideas about monthly savings and also day to day savings”.
“The spreadsheet will be an absolute DREAM”!!
“Breaks your saving plan down into easy and realistic goals to see the bigger picture”.
“Really love the customisable spreadsheet, so beneficial for future planning”!
“I like how tailored it was to our profession as teachers. For someone who is not financially ‘with it’ I now really have so much to think about. Even down to my daily and weekly spending and how this impacts my abilities to get a mortgage and save in the grand scheme of things!! It is a course every single teacher should do without a doubt, and straight away as I probably would have rented blindly for a lot longer if I did not do this course”!!
“Brilliant and helpful course. The information is clear and concise. A very matter of fact approach to saving”.
“Really loved this course, just opened my eyes to my unnecessary spending and ways I can save more to eventually own my own house”!
How much is it?
NQT Picnic is a specially designed online event for NQT’s in July 2022.
It is a daunting experience starting your very first teaching position – whether it is subbing or your own post! College seems like a long time ago now and you may be starting to feel a tad nervous.
Following the huge success of NQT Fest & Picnic in 2021, we are delighted to share this special event for NQT’s in July 2022 with you!
Free Resource for Teachers – End of School Year Activities!
What an exciting time of the year! Your main lessons and topics are complete and the pupils are getting excited for their summer holidays. It can be a challenging time to keep pupils engaged in classroom lessons due to exciting events on the horizon like school tours or sports days, so I like to keep things light and fun and still try to ensure the learning is taking place.
Ciara McGuane is the Summer Course Director for Rahoo.ie.
Her career highlights include being filmed by BBC London teaching in the classroom and guest-lecturing at the Institute of Education in London. She has worked as a teacher, school leader, teacher trainer and initial teacher training tutor prior to setting up Rahoo.
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?
