Apple Teacher

Apple Teacher is a free professional learning programme designed to support and celebrate educators using Apple products for teaching and learning. As an Educator you can build skills on iPad and Mac that directly apply to activities with your students, earn recognition for the new things you learn and be rewarded for the great work you do every day.

A flexible professional learning experience.

When you sign up for Apple Teacher, you'll start a self-paced journey through the Apple Teacher Learning Centre, a personalised online learning experience that you can access from anywhere!

The programme is a great way for schools and districts to offer free professional learning that their staff can work through together. Whether you’re new to Apple products or have been using them for years, whether you have a single device or one for every student — Apple Teacher has the tools you need to use iPad and Mac to connect with all learners.

Becoming an Apple Teacher is fun and easy.

Learn.

The Apple Teacher Learning Centre has everything teachers need to build a strong foundation for using iPad, Mac and Apple apps like Pages, Keynote, Numbers, GarageBand and iMovie in the classroom. Discover more than 75 skill-building lessons that include guided tutorials, ideas on how to apply them and inspiration on how to go further with each new skill you learn. Join Apple Teacher or sign in to explore these new resources.

Earn.

When you’re ready, test the new skills you’ve learnt by taking interactive quizzes in the Apple Teacher Learning Centre. Pass a quiz, earn a new badge. Collect all eight badges for either iPad or Mac to become a recognised Apple Teacher. You’ll be rewarded with an official Apple Teacher logo that you can share with the world, an Apple Teacher profile frame to use in social media and a personalised printable certificate you can display.
