In a secure collaborative space where teachers and faculty can reflect, and support and share with each other? Consolidating existing professional learning activities, making directed activities and self‑learning simpler for everyone?

Support & Integration
We work with you every step of the way
Our team’s been there, seen it and done it. You are not alone. You’ll be joining organisations, like yours, who enjoy being part of our HOW2 community.
You tell us what you’d like to do better as, together, we explore the app so you can see the value HOW2 can add.
Policy & Strategy
Make your vision for professional learning a reality by integrating HOW2 into your improvement strategies and policies.
Robust, efficient, manageable and effective. See the impact of using HOW2 to develop teaching knowledge and skills.
We still have a phone number and are always there when you need us.
Quite often as an overseas college you are left feeling isolated. Not so with the HOW2 team.
They are always there to support us and the implementation training was fantastic.
I have seen the impact that HOW2 has made in bringing improving Teaching and Learning to the top of the agenda for teachers and managers.
HOW2s were included as an integral part of the DCTT instructor development programme.
We used HOW2s as part of a programme to introduce evidence-based teaching at DSCIS and found they complemented and enhanced the Defence Instruction Training package provided to new and existing instructors.
The tools and methods gave our instructors greater variety and confidence in their instructional approaches and enhanced the student experience.
We have seen student satisfaction ratings increase significantly and [HOW2s] 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.
Save time, money and a little bit of the planet
Save time (save money) setting up, delivering and chasing up. See and evidence impact.
Support all your teaching staff — full time and part time in all locations.
Coaches/mentors spend more time coaching, 40% less time preparing resources and writing up reports.
HOW2 solves this huge problem.
The geographical spread of our apprenticeship delivery team within the UK means that we are faced with high travel and human resource costs if we wish to ensure quality improvement across the whole team.
Value for Money
I can’t imagine what we’d have to invest to get the same level of support…
I can’t imagine what we’d have to invest to get the same level of support to the same number of teachers on the same number of occasions as we do when we implement HOW2.
