CPT: Apple Regional Training Centre

Castle Phoenix Trust is pleased to announce that it has been recognised as an Apple Regional Training Centre so will continue its role for 2023-24.

Being selected as an Apple Regional Training Centre highlights our commitment to facilitating training for teachers to develop skills and build confidence to use Apple technology in the classroom.

All of the schools in our Trust integrate Apple iPad technology within the classroom, with Caludon having a 1:1 iPad programme launched 5 years ago.   This integration is delivered through one of our Trust ambitions: Digital Creativity.  We have made a commitment that we will develop creative thinkers. We will also promote thinking that relates to discovery and enquiry using digital technologies to enhance and transform learning and teaching.  We believe that iPads empower us to work together to open new avenues to learning, so that our staff and students are flexible, creative, digitally literate and better prepared for the future.

What are Apple Regional Training Centres?  

Apple Regional Training Centres create a community to share best practice and support teaching staff to attain Apple Teacher status, a professional learning programme designed to support and celebrate educators.

Teachers from across the region can attend courses to build their knowledge and skills using technology in the classroom and earn badges to achieve their Apple Teacher recognition.  

Across the UK and Ireland, the goals of all Apple Regional Training Centres are to:

  • facilitate training opportunities for teachers to develop skills using Apple technology in the classroom
  • promote Apple in Education and share new products and innovations with educators
  • build Apple Teacher across the region
  • share best practices, build community and inspire excellence.  To find out more, please visit the Apple Teacher website:  https://www.apple.com/uk/education/apple-teacher/
