TeachingHOW2s today announced its partnership with Runshaw College to extend 24⁄7 personalised coaching and pedagogical expertise to the college’s entire body of educators.
Well known for its outstanding results and continuous investment in its staff, Runshaw College selected the HOW2 instructional coaching app to support and enhance its existing TLA practices.
Starting with its Teacher Induction Programme for Early Career Teachers (ECTs), the HOW2 techniques along with the platform’s core collaborative learning tools, will be embedded as part of Runshaw’s peer observations, assessment and appraisal processes.
The app’s range of social learning tools will also foster the capture and sharing of best practices across the college’s A Level, vocational, FE and apprenticeship courses.

The HOW2 instructional coaching platform provides 24⁄7 access to step-by-step visual guides to evidence-based teaching techniques. The precise, easy-to-navigate nature of the HOW2 guides makes learning and adapting the techniques quick and easy, whether it’s for the classroom, lab or workspace.
Designed to improve learning through better teaching, the HOW2 app supports distributed learning environments and encourages peer-to-peer learning opportunities. Subscribers are given access to a private space to learn on their own but can also access a range of social learning tools that promote and facilitate shared, community-driven learning.
Leveraging the skills and expertise typically delivered by an instructional coach, the HOW2 coaching app gives faculty managers the tools and pedagogical resources they need to support teachers in meeting the ever-changing demands of teaching and student learning. Headquartered in the UK, the HOW2 app is used by Further Education and Higher Education colleges, schools, independent training providers and public organisations.
