TeachingHOW2s, provider of the education sector’s best in class HOW2 Professional Learning Platform, has achieved the Cyber Essentials Plus certification, for the second time.
A Government-backed and industry-supported scheme, the Cyber Essentials Plus certificate, will ensure that TeachingHOW2s and its fast-growing, global community of educators, will be protected against the growing threat of cyber-attacks.
The recent certification project is part of a round of updates to the HOW2 teacher development platform, demonstrating the company’s ongoing commitment to continuous improvement across its community of FE, HE and Community Colleges, professional training organisations and government bodies.
Since 2011 TeachingHOW2s has partnered with more than 200 FE colleges and post-16 training providers in the UK and overseas to overcome barriers to teaching, learning and assessment. Its best-in-class social learning platform delivers evidence-based, personalised support for unlimited numbers of teachers on demand, and a collaborative, whole organisation approach to pedagogical learning and development.
Available anytime, from any device, the HOW2 visual guides to Evidence Based Teaching (EBT) techniques come in a variety of visual formats, including info-graphics, click-through presentation screens and e‑books. The precise, step-by-step, easy-to-navigate nature of the guides makes learning and adapting the techniques quick and easy whether it’s for the classroom, lab or workspace.
Leveraging the skills and expertise typically delivered by an instructional coach, the HOW2 Platform gives busy teachers access to a private space to learn and an interpersonal space, with a range of collaborative learning features that facilitate the sharing of best practices across entire teaching institutions or networks of institutions.
The HOW2 Platform is used by Further Education and Higher Education colleges, schools, independent training providers and public organisations.
