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 & NQT Picnic n 2021 with over 300 teachers getting involved, we are delighted to share this special event for NQT's in July 2022 with you!


"Thanks so much. I learned so much and it has given me a lot to reflect on and implement into my practice. It was so reassuring to hear from like-minded people. I can't wait to go through the recording of the event again. I will definitely be doing some more courses through Rahoo and recommending it to my teacher friends". Hayley Morgan


"Fantastic - great speakers, true to real life teaching & not from a book"! Christina Phelan


"I attended the NQT Picnic 2021 with the intention of mentoring new teachers to my school. However, I've learnt so much today for me that is invaluable. I could not recommend the NQT Picnic enough. Many thanks to everyone". Sylvia O'Halloran


"The was an absolutely fantastic experience! Having the opportunity to hear different perspectives, opinions and advice from people in the teaching world really made me feel part of a community. It also reassured me to hear that so many teachers and NQTs go through the same struggles as I do, again, making me feel part of a special group. I would highly recommend this to anyone feeling a little disheartened about their first year as an NQT, or even anyone wishing to find out more in general. Brilliant"! Niamh
