Finsbury Park Apple Regional Training Centre

We are pleased to announce that The Federation of Grazebrook and Shacklewell Primary Schools in partnership with Woodberry Down Community Primary School is launching our own  Finsbury Park Apple Regional Training Centre. The official opening will take place on 23rd September 2015 at Woodberry Down Community Primary School.

What is an Apple RTC?

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.

RTC Support

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 and Apple Professional Development.

Details of the program and the free courses we will offer through academic year 2015/16 will be published soon.
