York College’s decision to implement the HOW2 app is part of an organisation-wide strategy to support teachers to be the very best they can be and to pursue excellence in all that the college does for its students and staff.
The HOW2 app will also support the further development of a college community of practice where teaching, learning and assessment is discussed with colleagues across the college as they collaborate within and across curriculum areas.
The app will offer a whole organisation approach to providing pedagogical expertise, boosting support to over 400 teachers at the college.
