Regional Training Centre

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.

At Penrice we offer 12 free training sessions throughout the academic year. These are varied and aim to give you an insight and experience of using technology to enhance teaching and learning. These are delivered by staff at Penrice, our in house Apple Distinguished Educator, visiting ADE’s and our partner Western Computers.

Invitations for upcoming courses can be found below.
