The Regional Training Centre programme was born in the UK in 2005 to provide teachers with training, expertise and access to best practice to support their use of Apple technology in the classroom. The programme brings together a wide community of experienced educators and experts who provide free and easy access to Apple’s creative learning technologies through local learning-hubs.
Every RTC has unique skills, a different curriculum or subject focus but all share the same objectives:
- To provide a focus on pedagogy, for sharing best practice and gaining skills
- To introduce planned, effective, digital solutions to schools using Mac and iPad
- To train teachers to use Apple’s tools and help enable active and transformative teaching within the classroom.
- To support, enhance and transform teaching and learning outcomes
The RTC Programme is a community programme and as such the ethos is about sharing each others’ learning experiences and knowledge between peers. The RTCs in the UK are learning-hubs within local regions, promoting collaboration and the sharing of resources and practices.
Apple is committed to supporting every Regional Training Centre. The RTC Community will have access to bespoke training and expertise. And this includes Apple Distinguished Educators, Apple Professional Development. RTCs can also discuss training opportunities with their local Apple Education Team consultant or their local Apple Solutions Expert.
All Regional Training Centre’s, will be invited to attend a two day conference that takes place twice a year. The conference is an opportunity to share best practice, focusing on collaboration and exciting hands on workshops.
All RTC’s will also be granted access to the RTC Community membership site. This site contains regularly updated free resource, media, communications, guidance & peer to peer access.
