Do they need support to deliver high-quality classroom sessions ‘off the job’? HOW2s, offering a blended approach of online CPD and ongoing live support, can help.
We’ve worked with over 100 post-16 training providers, including the MOD, Mercedes‑Benz UK and FE colleges across England, Wales, and Saudi Arabia to help them to go up to (or remain at) an Ofsted grade 2 or 1 or equivalent.
HOW2s are visual, step-by-step explanations of teaching techniques. The bite-sized ‘airplane safety card’-type visuals make them quick and easy to learn. Available online, we offer trainers and assessors what they need, when they need it, wherever they are.
HOW2 techniques have seen student satisfaction ratings increase significantly and have been an instrumental part in changing organisational and individual behaviours and cultures to reflect a genuine ‘trainee‑first’ approach.
I am convinced they directly contributed to an increase in first time pass rate from 82% to 98% for the CS Operator Class 3 training.
As a consequence of the experience at DSCIS, HOW2s were included as an integral part of the DCTT instructor development programme.
Each HOW2 explains exactly how to engage apprentices in their learning.
HOW2s ensure that your trainers know how to make apprentices active participants in each learning process. Crucially, HOW2s explain how to do this in ways that keep the focus firmly on the acquisition of skills and knowledge.
Our focus is to help you increase retention by boosting engagement and, in turn, results.
The HOW2 techniques have now been integrated into the Training and Assessing teams’ CPD and PDRs, ensuring a change in behaviours and cultures to create an interactive and autonomous training environment for our learners.
HOW2s are not expensive, difficult to use, or disruptive. By investing in HOW2s, you are investing in something more sustainable than traditional train-the-trainer-type courses. Someone leaves or a new trainer arrives? No problem — give them a HOW2 user account.
With HOW2s you can standardise your approach to quality and use at any scale. And unlike traditional ‘live’ training, we don’t go away — you’ll have your own HOW2 professional learning lead working with you from the get-go.
Inspired me how to energise and make your teaching practice more interesting to you and your students.
The techniques have re-energised my approach to teaching teachers
It requires minimum effort to understand them and identify how they can be employed in my own area.
The ease of use and simple explanations make taking away new methods and skills very quick, allowing rapid adoption.
HOW2 has enabled teachers to focus in on techniques to enable post-16 learners to really make progress in Maths and English where they had got stuck beforehand.
The results produced by HOW2s are exceptionally impressive. Student retention, understanding and enjoyment are all significantly increased.
We needed a product that would enhance and improve the quality of our learning through better teaching, across a very large and diverse organisation — and that was why we chose HOW2s.
I didn’t find books and courses very practical — I couldn’t remember very much to be honest… I feel so much more confident now.
