Warm and welcoming – got to know people – very organised
I have really enjoyed this experience and would love to return. It has been fantastically organised and a lot of thought has clearly been put in. Thank you very much!
Great weekend would love to return next year
Had a great weekend and learnt a lot
Was a great weekend, I am pleased I came!
A useful weekend for sharing ideas, networking and finding out more about the NEU
I really enjoyed the Teachmeet and would love to attend more events like it, focused either on subject or topics eg AFL, assessment and feedback, ‘hoo-ha’ plenaries etc could be an exceptionally easy way to visibly show a reduction in workload and practical suggestions for an NEU event
General information about the history of the union and how ‘education politics’ has become what it is today – this is important for new teachers to provide an alternative philosophy to what they are exposed to in ITT
I have thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. As the union is now for support staff/TA’s etc too, I feel some sessions aimed more at working as a TA would be beneficial. Also, more about how TA’s fit into the union. Less or shorter coffee breaks. I did enjoy the sessions I did though! More SEND sessions needed too!
Everyone is so friendly and welcoming.
Met some lovely people.
Relaxing and fun. Everyone very welcoming and friendly.
Friendly and helpful.
Motivating but light hearted.
Useful to have some more information on what a trade union is and definitely try to rally some more troops when back at work.
Excellent experience and feeling inspired to stay in the profession.
Brilliant weekend, everyone involved and ran workshops were/are brilliant.
A fantastic weekend. Love it.
A great and well organised weekend.
Thank you to all involved in organising. It has been a great weekend away. Look forward to next time!
It has been a really well organised, useful and enjoyable event. As CPD is limited/non-existent in my school it is nice to be able to attend some that I can use in my everyday teaching. Are there weekends like this available to over 35’s/further career teachers? A lovely event – would definitely recommend!
Great weekend. Learnt a lot and enjoyed mixing with other teachers. Reps were good – Bob was great! Would definitely attend again.
All workshops were important issues/subjects to me and I felt like I have taken a lot away from the weekend! Thank you!
A fantastic weekend!!!!!
I’ve had the best weekend, thank you so much! A lot of thought has gone into it and it has been just what I needed. It’s a fantastic chance to network with others from secondary as I wouldn’t usually get a chance to do so in primary. Very motivational and some good ideas/thoughts to go back to school with. Thank you again for the opportunity to be here and keep fighting the fight!!
Brilliant weekend, again. Love coming to RECT – great way to meet a lot of other professionals and share ideas.
Fantastic weekend made some great friends and got a lot to take back into school. Can’t wait to put it into practice!

Thank you for the place! It’s great to come a second time and I found this year even better than last year. It has been really useful this year to meet other local Young Teachers who want to be active in the Union and thinking about what we could do to engage more members.
Another amazing RECT. High quality workshops and superb networking. Looking forward to next year and getting more involved.
This has been really useful and a really good chance to mix with other NQTs, I am the only NQT in my school so it has been nice to compare notes.
Overall, the weekend has been excellent. It was such a great opportunity to network with other primary teachers and especially to liaise with different authorities and get new ideas and just to see how things work in other places. A fabulous location in Newcastle and being able to stay at the Hilton encouraged people to socialise on an evening which has built some nice friendships. I would recommend this weekend to all types of teachers and personalities because it has something for everyone.
This has been an excellent weekend with loads of opportunities to share good practice. Thank you.
I thoroughly enjoyed attending RECT 2012 and feel an honourable member of the NUT. Every part of this weekend has been relevant to my role and inspiring. I would love to attend more!
Excellent weekend overall.

Staff serving dinner on Friday professional. ALL NUT staff friendly and approachable they all know what they are talking about.
A great event and opportunity to get to know more about NUT. Would love to get more involved in NUT.
Had a wonderful informative time. These events can lend themselves to boredom, however you have organised this really well. The workshops were relevant and informative. The speakers were enthusiastic, relevant and humorous.
I had a great weekend and one of the highlights for me was the networking that took place.
Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. The workshops were good informative but most of all I found networking to be of good use. To hear similar stories makes me feel less isolated and more united. A big thank you to the organisers and leaders.
I came to this conference due to the proximity to home. After the fantastic informative and high quality information I have received I am now interested in becoming more involved and hope to attend the Liverpool 2013 conference.
A thoroughly enjoyable and very useful weekend. Thanks!
A lovely weekend. Thank you.
This is the first conference I have been to and I feel inspired that this is actually quite a good job after talking to other teachers (sometimes it’s good to get a new perspective). Thank you very much!
Thank you for a fantastic weekend. Will be spreading the word.
A great weekend with opportunities to meet some fantastic people. Thank you.

Anne Swift mentioned training at Stoke Rochford – made me want to take advantage.

Got to know about course from a colleague – was not a member of NUT so joined so I could come.
A really enjoyable weekend – better than expected! Covered lots of aspects and has improved my understanding of the NUT.
Information on the course by email was extremely helpful, I would not have known about the course without the email reminders. Being able to choose workshops meant that all sessions were relevant. Everyone was very positive and it was nice to meet the union officials.
Great fun and very informative.
Great idea! Good to get local young teachers together. Would be great to meet everyone again.
I thought it was very organised, enjoyable and informative weekend. Thank you!
