Tormead School in Guildford is an Apple Regional Training Centre.
We have embraced the phenomenal changes offered by developments in technology and these are changing the delivery of lessons, along with the look and feel of every classroom.
Our first RTC event was to host an Apple Education Conference in March 2016 which was attended by delegates from schools across the south of England. Tormead staff led workshops demonstrating the immense versatility of the Apple platform when used in an educational setting.
Apple Regional Training Centres deliver courses to build the skills and confidence of educators to use Apple technology inside and outside the classroom. They are a community who share best practices and inspire excellence through teaching with Apple technology.
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.
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.
