I remember my first reaction when seeing them was ‘Wow! Where was this when I did my PGCE?’

Nicolas Quentin Maths Teacher, Reading College

HOW2 has enabled teachers to focus in on techniques to enable post-16 learners to really make progress in Maths where they had got stuck beforehand.

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.

Edyta Jaszczyszyn Teacher and Manager, College of Haringey

The HOW2s enable professional learning to take place right throughout the year, at the point in time when the teacher is ready for that learning and it is relevant to that teacher to experiment with that learning.

In 2011 we were the very first college to subscribe to HOW2s. When Carole joined the HOW2 team in 2015 as their professional learning lead it was the icing on the cake. Carole’s webinar support has been absolutely fantastic. Great product, great people, great service.

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.
