“In an entrepreneurial society individuals face a tremendous challenge, a challenge they need to exploit as an opportunity: the need for continual learning and relearning,” (Peter Drucker).  A good education is more important today than ever before – for learners, employers, educators, and governments. Knowing How provides education and training providers, employers, research organisations and government with expert consultancy, research and strategy services in the post-16 education and training sector, complimented with specific expertise in EdTech, digital education, blended learning and digital transformation. One goal – make a difference.

 

LATEST NEWS

 

Now out, the New Blended Learning – a methodology developed by Dr Lesley Crane, Director of Knowing How, for effective adult learning and development for the 21st Century. Premiered at the recent Digital Leaders virtual conference – access the webinar recording here.

Knowing How has recently completed work on a large-scale research project focusing on English for Speakers of Other Languages and EdTech with the Learning and Work Institute and the Department for Education. Research results – which contained some interesting surprises – have been reported as a set of recommendations to the DfE.

We are delighted to be working with the Learning and Work Institute on a ground-breaking transformational and transnational European prison education project which aims to reform prison education across Europe. The project’s International Conference takes place in three different countries (virtually) in early October 2020 with Knowing How’s Dr Lesley Crane as a key speaker on effective learning methodologies and policy recommendations to EU member states.

New start up projects include developing T Level resources for teachers covering the new Digital T Level, working with the Adult Learning Improvement Network and the Gatsby Foundation. 

 

About Us

Set up by Dr Lesley Crane more than 10 years ago, Knowing How has one purpose – to support learners, educators, education and training providers, employers, research agencies and government to design, develop and deliver the best possible education and skills experience. We do this through diligent research, razor analysis, intelligent and evidence-informed consultancy, and strategy development. Ultimately, we take the learner’s perspective as customer first and foremost on the simple principle that if an education experience has positive outcomes for them as a person, whether a job-seeker, employee, educator, student, entrepreneur, executive, or leader, then all of the stakeholders involved benefit. It’s an approach that we believe works.
